In Brazilian Presidential Election Former Leftist President Wins First Round as Voters Rebuff Current President

SÃO PAULO—Former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva took the most votes in Sunday’s first round of Brazil’s presidential elections, edging ahead of President Jair Bolsonaro by pledging to focus on the poverty and unemployment made worse by the pandemic and the ensuing global economic crisis.

Mr. da Silva, a standard-bearer of the Latin American left who is widely popular among the poor despite having been jailed on a corruption conviction in 2018, clinched 47.7% of the vote. The tally was just shy of the majority he needed to win outright, with 95.7% of votes counted Sunday night, according to Brazil’s electoral court.
