    Lula's party preparing Plan B: a united left front for October elections

    Lula has privately discussed the need for Haddad to start preparing to run, even while the party plans to stick to their founder’s candidacy.

    The most likely political heir to jailed former President Lula da Silva insists the leftist leader is still the Workers Party’s candidate for the October elections, but he is preparing to step into the role. Fernando Haddad told the Brazilian media that he was talking with other left-wing parties about forging a united leftist front for the elections if Lula is barred from running by a corruption conviction.
