In a speech in Sao Paulo on Monday (Oct.9), former President Lula da Silva (recently convicted for corruption and awaiting a new judgment) accepted for the first time that he may not be a candidate in the presidential elections of 2018. Lula said that if he does not run (for being incarcerated) he will be a strong electoral canvasser of the candidate to be chosen by the Workers’ Party (PT). He just did not explain how he could act in favor of his party’s candidate being himself in jail.

In the event that Lula can not be PT’s candidate, the party will   probably present the name of former  education minister and former mayor of Sao Paulo, Fernando Haddad, a politician little known outside the State of Sao Paulo who did not get his own re-election as city’s mayor.
