Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is again in energy for a 3rd presidential time period.
Because the saying goes, the third time’s the appeal.
For newly sworn-in Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, his third time period is an opportunity to take his nation in a brand new path.
A lot has modified because the leftist chief was final in workplace 12 years in the past. He has inherited a bitterly divided nation with a bleak financial outlook and an Amazon rainforest affected by the insurance policies of his predecessor, Jair Bolsonaro, who allowed intensive deforestation.
The far-right chief skipped Sunday’s handover ceremony and is now in the US.
So is that this a brand new daybreak for Brazil? And what challenges stay for its president?
