Ex-President of Brazil

Resultado de imagem para lula

The polarizing figure in Brazilian politics for the past three decades. The face of the Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT, or Workers’ Party), he was President of Brazil from 2002-2010, presiding over drastic reductions in poverty and leaving office with astronomical approval rates. He then was able to usher his protege Dilma Rousseff into office, helping her to two elections before her impeachment in 2016.

Currently in jail on controversial corruption charges, but still a candidate for 2018 and leading the polls.
