    Lula waiting for Supreme Court decision before giving up his presidential candidacy

    Lula spent Monday in his prison cell with his lawyers and Fernando Haddad, who is the vice presidential candidate on PT's  ticket and is Lula's choice to replace him

    Brazil's imprisoned former president Lula da Silva will not yet bow out of next month's presidential race, waiting first to hear a Supreme Court decision on an appeal of his ban from running, his legal team said. His decision takes his leftist Workers' Party (PT) close to the limit on registering a candidate for the October 7 election, with a court having set Tuesday as the deadline for the PT to name a replacement nominee.
