A supporter of Jair Bolsonaro salutes during a celebration in front of his residence after he was declared the victor of the election runoff, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Sunday.

However, polls published late Saturday from Brazil's two biggest surveying firms showed momentum shifting toward Haddad, though he still trails Bolsonaro by a solid margin. In particular, many Brazilians were furious with the Workers' Party for its role in the graft scheme known as "Carwash".

He has represented the state of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil's congress since 1991.

More than 147 million Brazilians were called to the polls today in the largest election in Latin America.

Across Massachusetts, some 35,000 Brazilians were registered to vote in Sunday's election, according to Mariana Benvenuti, a deputy at the Brazilian consulate in Boston.

"I don't idolize Bolsonaro and I don't know if he will govern well, but we are hopeful". "Freedom, equality and fraternity - always and at any cost".

Australian captain Aaron Finch won the toss and sent Pakistan in to bat in the first Twenty20 global in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. The two Australian pacemen Billy Stanlake and Andrew Tye, did most of the damage, with three wickets apiece.

Bolsonaro, who early in his legislative career declared he was "in favor" of dictatorships and demanded that Congress be disbanded, vowed after his Sunday night win to adhere to democratic principles while holding up a copy of the nation's Constitution.

Brazil's current president, Michel Temer, has congratulated Bolsonaro on his "historic victory" and guaranteed that there will be a peaceful transfer of power. A popular anti-corruption judge, Joaquim Barbosa, who jailed several top PT leaders for corruption, also came out for Haddad.

Many observers cast doubt on the legitimacy of the election after former president Lula da Silva was barred from running in contravention of the UN Human Rights Committee, and Lula had very restricted access to the media.

"I'm surprised Brazilians would vote for hate, for guns", said Flavia Castelhanos, 31, after wiping away her tears, wearing a pin that said "Not him" - opponents' rallying cry against Bolsonaro.

The election came on the heels of Brazil's worst-ever recession, a staggering multi-billion-dollar corruption scandal and a year of record-setting violent crime.

In addition to the race hatred and lies he spreads on a regular basis, this week he encouraged direct violence against the media. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation by name.

In Rio de Janeiro, Bolsonaro ally and former judge Wilson Witzel beat Eduardo Paes who presided as mayor for two terms, included when the city hosted the 2016 Olympics. He has faced charges for misogynist, racist and homophobic rants.

Misogyny. As the BBC notes, "In one infamous incident in 2015 he told a fellow lawmaker she was too ugly to rape". He called the case political persecution. However, the PSL, despite a remarkable surge that saw it win 52 seats in the legislative election earlier this month, is still behind the PT (56 seats) in Congress. Bolsonaro will also have to work with as many as 28 other parties in the House, which could make it hard to implement his radical agenda.

YouTuber Neto said he had been neutral until that point.

He said during an i24 interview last month that Israel - which he visited previous year - will be the first country he visits, and that he wants to develop closer ties with the Jewish state.

"I was never alone".

Racism. He's reportedly referring to black activists as "animals" who should "go back to the zoo", according to The Independent, and in reference to a black settlement in Brazil that was founded by the descendants of slaves, he said: "They do nothing".

"Bolsonaro stood out among the many candidates for including the State of Israel in the major speeches he made during the campaign", Israel's honorary consul in Rio, Osias Wurman, told JTA. "He is a truculent and risky person, and that's how he should be presented to the nation", he said.
