30 Parties Win Seats in Brazilís Lower House

BRASILIA Ė The center-left Workers Party (PT) of imprisoned former two-term president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva will be the largest formation in Brazilís lower house with 56 out of 513 seats, electoral authorities said on Monday.

The PSL, led by far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, rose to the occasion on Sunday, going from the one seat the party landed in 2014 to 52 this year.

In the presidential contest, Bolsonaro obtained 46 percent of the votes, while the PTís Fernando Haddad got 29 percent, and the two men will face each other Oct. 28 in a runoff.

The PT lost 12 seats compared to the 2014 elections.

Centrist PP came third, with 37 members, while outgoing President Michel Temerís party got fourth place, with 34 seats.

Another conservative party, the PSDB, lost nearly half its seats, falling from 54 in 2014 to 29 in the current election.

The Novo party took eight seats in a lower house divided into 30 different formations, which will hinder the future presidentís negotiation powers, making it hard to further his administrationís projects.

Eduardo Bolsonaro, Jairís son, won a set in the lower house representing Sao Paulo state, as did reporter Joice Hasselmann, a prominent ally of the rightist presidential hopeful.
