Brazil election: Candidates rally supporters day before hotly contested vote

Brazil’s leftist candidate and election frontrunner, Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, held a rally on Saturday in the streets of Sao Paulo as a final campaign event before the election. Meanwhile, Brazil’s incumbent far-right President and presidential candidate, Jair Bolsonaro, led his popular thundering “motociatas” or motorcycle convoys on Saturday. A poll released on Saturday by MDA showed Bolsonaro has chipped away at half of Lula's lead, which is now down to 7.9 percentage points.
