Brazil election: Why are the poor voting for Lula?

Brazilians go to the polls on Sunday to elect their next president, in a run-off between left-wing former President Lula da Silva and right-wing incumbent Jair Bolsonaro.

Poverty is a huge election issue. Because of Covid and the cost of living crisis, a lot of Brazilians are struggling financially.

North-eastern Brazil was particularly hard hit during the pandemic, and in the state of Ceará, many believe Lula is the man with the answer to their problems.
