    Bye, Bye Lula

    The two terms president and most popular politician in Brazil, Lula da Silva, is currently jailed in Curitiba

    On Sunday, Brazil’s top electoral court ruled that “Lula”, former president Luiz Inácio da Silva, cannot run in the presidential election this October. He served two terms as president (2003-2011), he dutifully waited out the following two terms, and his Workers’ Party (PT) has nominated him for the presidency again.
