Lula defeats Bolsonaro in Brazil's presidential election
Bolsonaro, a conservative Christian populist, was endorsed by former U.S. President Donald Trump.
Former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, known as Lula, has defeated the incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro in the presidential election Sunday.
According to Reuters, "Lula had 50.8% of votes compared with 49.2% for Bolsonaro with 99.1% of voting machines counted, which the Supreme Electoral Court said was enough to 'mathematically define' the outcome of the race."
Here are the official results.
Da Silva is slightly favored to win again as opinion polls on Saturday showed he had a four-point lead over Bolsonaro, Reuters reported.
