    Lula will tell his followers next week to vote for Fernando Haddad

    Lula will ask his followers to vote for Haddad, sources said. The PT has until the end of Tuesday to register Haddad as its presidential candidate

That will remove the most popular candidate from October’s race and pave the way for Lula’s hand-chosen successor, Fernando Haddad, to become the Workers Party (PT) candidate.
