Brazil presidential candidate is in serious condition after been stabbed

Brazil presidential candidate is in serious condition after been stabbed, Jair Bolsonaro, the far-right candidate leading first-round polls, in a serious but stable condition.

 

Brazilian far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro is recovering in hospital after being stabbed at a campaign rally.

Bolsonaro, 63, was stabbed in the city of Juiz de Fora, about 200km north of Rio de Janeiro, on Thursday. Police have arrested the unidentified attacker.

Bolsonaro underwent emergency surgery for a wound in the abdomen and is expected to recover, hospital officials told reporters.

Videos shared on social media showed Bolsonaro, whose agenda includes cracking down on crime in Latin America’s largest country, being carried through a crowd by his supporters when he is suddenly stabbed with a knife to the lower part of his stomach.

Frontrunner

Bolsonaro is the frontrunner in the first-round of the presidential elections next month with 22 percent support, according to a poll published by the Institute of Public Opinion and Statistics (IBOPE), a private media company in Brazil.

It was the first public opinion poll since former president and popular leftist, Luiz Inacio da Silva, was barred from running by Brazil’s electoral court on September 1.

Lula, who was previously leading the opinion polls, is currently serving a 12-year prison sentence for fraud related to a corruption scandal.

Bolsonaro has been described a right-wing nationalist and populist, who strongly opposes left-wing policies.

The frontrunner has caused a number of controversies in recent years, saying in 2015 that he didn’t believe men and women should not receive equal pay because women become pregnant and other similar “homophobic” comments.

Lula’s likely replacement, Fernando Haddad, who has also been charged with corruption, came in last with six percent in the Ibope poll, which, however, also found that a third of Brazil’s population is undecided.

Brazil’s first round of voting will take place on October 7.
