Jair Bolsonaro is a Brazilian politician who has served six consecutive terms as the Federal Deputy for Rio de Janeiro and represented the state at the Chamber of Deputies for 27 years. He recently decided to run for presidency during the 2018 elections as a member of the Social Liberal Party (PSL), following which he attracted international media attention as the 'Tropical Trump' for his far-right political stand and strong opposition to left-wing policies. Throughout his tenure as a congressman, he has time and again made controversial comments about same-sex marriage, equal wages for women, abortion, drug liberalization, land reforms, affirmative action, and secularism. After Workers' Party (PT) candidate Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva was disqualified by the court to run for presidency, he emerged as the frontrunner in the general elections and has secured first place in the first round with 46% votes. He is all set to face PT candidate, Fernando Haddad, who got 29% votes in the first round, on October 28, 2018.
