Bolsonaro campaign seeks to antagonize Lula at official start


BRASILIA (Reuters) – President Jair Bolsonaro’s (PL) reelection campaign officially kicked off with the release of a video in the early hours of Tuesday, and allies sought to antagonize him with former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT). ), which appears first in the vote intention polls for the Palácio do Planalto.

Video published on social media by Senator Flávio Bolsonaro (PL-RJ), the president’s firstborn and one of the coordinators of the campaign for his father’s reelection, explores in a jingle the profile of “Captain of the People”, defender of the family and who will not deceive the population.

“Brazil is now starting to decide its future for the next decades. May God enlighten our nation so that Brazil follows the path of prosperity, and does not return to the dark past, with a gang plundering the Brazilian people. It’s the Captain or the thief!”, said Flávio Bolsonaro, in a post on Twitter.

Starting this Tuesday, party propaganda and fundraising events for the campaign are allowed. However, electoral donations can only be made by individuals – the same rule as in past elections.

Symbolically, the first official campaign act by Bolsonaro and his vice-presidential candidate, Braga Netto, will be this Tuesday morning in Juiz de Fora. It was in this mining town where he was the target of a knife attack perpetrated by Adélio Bispo. According to official investigations, he acted alone – Bolsonaro has always disputed this.

According to a source from the reelection campaign, the president is expected to speak at the exact place where he was attacked. One of the main paths is to polarize with the former president and seek to preach a kind of “campaign of fear” with the eventual return of the PT to the Planalto Palace.

According to this source, the intention is also to explore and seek to intensify the president’s support for the evangelical public.

The campaign’s bet, according to two sources, is that Bolsonaro improves his voting intentions and gets closer to Lula in the polls as soon as the population begins to feel the effects of the so-called PEC of Benefits, which granted, among other measures, an increase in the value of Auxílio Brasil until the end of the year, and also the reduction of inflation, especially in fuel prices.

In addition to the massive use of social networks, a medium in which Bolsonaro had strong success and influence in the last election, the campaign also bets on radio and television advertising that will begin soon to reverse the PT’s advantage, with the disclosure of the government’s achievements, according to the second source. In this election, Bolsonaro’s coalition is made up of the PL, PP and Republicans, all parties of the so-called Centrão.
