GOING TO PT: The world's largest political risk analysis consultancy, the Eurasia Group, evaluates that Lula (PT) is the favorite to win the October elections. According to the document, the PT has a 70% chance of victory.
According to journalist Lilian Venturini of the newspaper Valor Economico, the percentage for Lula remains the same because, in the Eurasia survey, the chances of a third-way candidate being elected fell from 10 percent to 5.0 percent.
Former judge Sérgio Moro was rejected to run in the presidential race by the Union Brazil party's leadership. Joao Doria, from the Brazilian Social Democracy Party, and Simone Tebet, from the Brazilian Democratic Movement, have also not made any progress in their pre-candidacy.
The consulting group said that only former governor Ciro Gomes who remains in third place but far from Lula and Bolsonaro, would have a chance of being reelected if his performance at the Planalto Palace, the seat of the executive branch of the Brazilian Federal Government, were approved by more than 40 percent of the electoral body.
