Brazil: Rio reacts to Bolsonaro's first-round victory

Residents of Brazil's largest city, Rio de Janeiro, offered their outlook on the results of the presidential elections on Monday, just hours after the country went to the polls. One local said, «I voted for him [Jair Bolsonaro] because we need to renew those in politics.» Among the undecided, a different passerby said, «I didn't like it, none of the candidates, I don't trust [Jair] Bolsonaro... Еще and [Fernando] Haddad — we all know his party history, so I'm not satisfied.» Bolsonaro secured a victory in the first-round, winning 46.93 percent of votes, with 99 percent of all votes counted at the time of writing. This means Bolsonaro fell just short of the majority required to win outright, and so voting will head into a second round. Fernando Haddad from the leftist Workers' Party, who came second, won 28.9 percent of votes, followed by the Democratic Labour Party's Ciro Gomes with 12.5 percent. The second round of the election will take place on 28 October between Bolsonaro and Haddad.
