Brazil: The electoral chessboard, unveiled

  • With the end of the party conventions, the full list of candidates – and VP running mates – for the wide-open October presidential race has finally firmed up
  • Notwithstanding ardent voter hopes of change, the biggest winners of the convention talks were Brazil’s two dominant parties of yore: the PSDB and the PT
  • Former President Lula’s PT has inched closer to the runoff round after enacting Phase 1 of its Plan B and isolating leftist rival Ciro Gomes as a result
  • Market-friendly Geraldo Alckmin (PSDB) has selected a female, conservative senator as his VP pick, in a tactical move to win back the south and rural voters
  • After forming last-minute alliances, both former Environment Minister Marina Silva and Paraná Senator Álvaro Dias have managed to keep their bids alive
  • Unable to branch out, far-right Jair Bolsonaro picked a right-wing general as his VP choice, limiting his ability to woo undecided voters but firing up his core base
  • Industrial production recovered in June but unemployment remains a concern
