Bolsonaro leads massive motorcade rally in Belo Horizonte ahead of presidential election run-off – Market Subset News

Hundreds of motorbikers followed Brazilian Incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro on Saturday during a rally in Belo Horizonte ahead of the second round of the presidential election.

Bolsonaro can be seen making his way through the crowd of cheering supporters as well as riding a motorbike.

In round one, Bolsonaro received 43.5 percent, while Presidential Candidate Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, who served as president from 2003 to 2010, got 48.1 percent. The runoff was triggered when neither candidate achieved more than half the votes cast.

Bolsonaro, whose campaign slogan is ‘God, family, homeland, and liberty’, aims at privatising key state-owned companies and easing gun regulations.

Lula’s Workers’ Party (PT) focused its campaign on fighting social inequality and poverty, proposing measures such as increasing the minimum wage.

The presidential runoff takes place on October 30.
