The 2022 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections in Brazil. Results and Impacts
Online Event Series on Brazil

On October 30, former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva of the Workers’ Party (PT) narrowly defeated incumbent Jair Bolsonaro in the runoff of Brazil's presidential election. In January 2023, he will assume the presidency of Brazil for the third time, a position he already held between 2003 and 2020. In the first round of this year's presidential and parliamentary elections, the radical right-wing incumbent Jair Bolsonaro had done much better than pollsters had predicted. Even though Lula managed a narrow victory in the runoff election, he and the country are facing difficult times ahead. The number of deputies, senators and governors who support Bolsonaro’s political course will be significantly greater in the next four years than in the legislative period now coming to an end.

The Online Event Series brings together scholars from Brazil and Europe to discuss the results of the 2022 presidential and parliamentary elections in the context of the Brazilian political system, to draw a balance of the four years of government under President Bolsonaro, and to provide an outlook on expected developments from 2023 onwards.
