Bolsonaro and Lula face the first electoral debate of 2022 – World

The first debate between the six candidates for the Presidency of the Republic in Brazil took place on Sunday and was broadcast by Band studios in São Paulo.

In a lottery, the places of the candidates on the stage were defined. From left to right, these look like this: Jair Bolsonaro, Ciro Gomes, Felipe D’Ávila, Soraya Thronicke, Lula and Simone Tebet.

In a first part, questions will be asked about selected topics and candidates will have between one and one and a half minutes to answer. Afterwards, candidates will be able to ask their opponents questions, and they will have four minutes to submit their opinion.

In the second part, it will be the journalists’ turn to ask the questions, also choosing who comments on the answer. Likewise, they will have between a minute and a minute and a half to respond.

This first debate will end with each candidate making their final remarks, with the right to two minutes.

Thus, the debate began at 9:00 pm in Brazil, starting with D’Ávila and Soraya Thronicke’s answers to the question: “How to balance the enormous social barriers and at the same time guarantee the responsibility of the country’s accounts?

The candidates mentioned that the Brazilian economy has been “stagnant for 20 years”, and Soraya Thronicke presented a solution: “We have a solution for the country, which is the single federal tax”.

About 20 minutes later, the first round of questions between the candidates began. Jair Bolsonaro chose Lula and questioned the former president of Brazil about corruption. “You want to go back to power for what?”.

Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva regrets that education has been “abandoned in the country”. “I increase the budget for education,” he added.

“We have to believe that nothing happens by chance, and people need to know that it’s not worth citing lies on television,” says Lula, throwing a barb at Jair Bolsonaro.
