    Surprise shock for Lula: praise from Temer, “he's a very charismatic figure”

    “He's a very charismatic figure. There's a reason he's leading opinion polls”, Temer said on Radio Bandeirantes. “I don't think he's dead.”

    Brazil's popular but scandal-plagued leftist ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva got an unlikely morale boost on Monday from a political nemesis, current President Michel Temer. Lula easily leads the polls heading to October's presidential election but his dream of returning to office was left in doubt last week after an appeals court upheld an earlier corruption conviction against him.
