Brazil's presidential election heads to a runoff between Lula and Bolsonaro

Despite preelection polls giving da Silva, who is widely known as Lula, a double-digit lead, the race was a nail-biter 

In fact, da Silva stayed behind for many nights before finally moving on.

लगभग 97% मतों की गिनती के साथ लगभग 47.9% मतों के साथ जीत हासिल की।

Sunday's voting was largely peaceful after a contentious, sometimes violent campaign in which Brazil's democracy seemed to hang in the balance.
