“They tried to bury me alive but they couldn’t”, says Lula da Silva.
The model implemented by Jair Bolsonaro failed and we already predicted that the outcome would be this. When a political opponent is often attacked, these days, normally, the effect is produced in the opposite way, that is, instead of tarnishing the image of this proponent, we increase the opponent’s visibility, because, in politics, and increasingly people are realizing that there are no saints and sinners, and that there is no good and bad, there are interests to be pursued and, at the same time, struggle is fought for their materialization, even if this does not encompass the satisfaction of the governed.
What we have often seen, and have already recommended countless times in other electoral disputes, is not to attack the opponent as if we were perfect, as if we had a magic wand, because, INSTEAD OF DESTROYING THIS PERSON, WE RUN THE RISK OF BEING BUILD IT. And Lula da Silva’s team took great advantage of this, used all background noise against himself, and he counterattacked even under the rubble, pointing out the failure of those at the helm, because he was more exposed to social scrutiny.
The result of these elections, even in the first round, left a clear note: the existence of political-ideological division on the part of Brazilian citizens, to the extent that, although Brazil returned for the third time to Lula’s hands, it was a suffered victory due to the small disparity of votes on each side, THEY LEFT A MESSAGE OF WHAT THEY WANT. On the one hand, Lula with a percentage of 50.9 (60345999 votes) and on the other hand 49.1 (58206354 votes), presupposes that they took the game to exhaustion, the two opponents fought to the last resort, with barbs, insults and an avalanche of accusations. But what Brazilians really want is the resolution of their problems, of the vulnerable and of basic issues, food and education.
Lula stated that Brazilians want books, theater, cinema and culture, that is, he attacked in areas that his opponent did not pay attention to, while he was wasting time looking for scandals and Lula and his successor, Dilma Rousseff, by the way, when Lula leaves his successor, hovered her not going in fact, would continue to rule in the shadows.
Jair Bolsonaro had much more advantage, as he is the acting president, and he could use this position to his advantage, against a seasoned, older opponent, who during his time in government arose several corruption scandals, even leading to his arrest. Former president, who fortunately knew how to use this fragility to his advantage, However, Bolsonaro had concise advantages of the political metiê, however, he wasted time attacking his opponent, and his supporters, instigated violence, discrimination, created social fractions, and political skepticism increased, putting an end to that democracy that had already laid its institutional tentacles. For this reason, Brazilians say that democracy won. Therefore, the alliances that they made in this second round served as a support staff, and once again Bolsonaro’s choices were not the best, to the point of several times jeopardizing the electoral process itself, which slipped the racket of his followers. supporters who do not accept the results. Truck drivers closed many avenues of communication to stop the country and incite violence, the result of their leader, Lula, on the other hand, made choices of individuals with a different social position, mild, pedagogical, who value peace and stability.
The harbinger that Lula would be back, is the failure, in a way, of the policies designed by Bolsonaro, who, did not make him reach the summit, and he recognized this, but blamed the world economic crisis, as a result of Covid-19, and the war in Ukraine which greatly aggravated his work. It has its reasons, but the most vulnerable fringe, which is the majority, became much more vulnerable, because the support did not meet the real needs that plagued the people.
Another very relevant issue is the issue of Bolsonaro’s speeches, unlike Lula, who is much more experienced, bringing a more inclusive approach, covering everyone, young, old, employed and unemployed, and was the thread of the perception that in a world in crisis , what is intended is greater BALANCE and ENGAGEMENT, of the people. Let’s note how the votes in the diaspora were, for both, Lula wins Portugal, China and Angola, countries with a political matrix of social justice, however, let’s look at the countries where Bolsonaro takes advantage, Japan, Greece and Israel for example, then, frame their social matrices. Political and economic models say a lot and have largely dictated this result.
Lula affirms that the moment is to “reestablish peace between the dissenters” and that “he will govern for all Brazilians, and not just for those who voted for him. Which demonstrates that Lula da Silva does not intend to create the Brazil of the winners and the Brazil of the losers.
What can we expect with the return of Lula da Silva, is greater openness at all levels, reaffirming historical ties, commercial relations, and improvement in the business sector, where Angola, one of Brazil’s great partners, who share a lot of ideals, because of the PT and MPLA party matrices, as they make part of the same Marxist-Leninist school, will take advantage of this relationship that has lasted decades, as strategic partners, and Angolan and Brazilian companies have already had a certain stability with Lula in both markets, Brazil is part of the emerging economies, has know how, and there is again a window of opportunity for both, in the real estate, construction, banking, consulting, technology, academic and cultural sectors. We hope the relaunch of intense relations in several areas, not only with Angola but with other countries where Bolsonaro has cooled relations as a result of his leadership more focused on the internal market.
Let’s hope you don’t waste time with revenge and persecution, with this remount of power, 4 years go by fast and for your age, it’s best to leave your legacy unassailable.
