Despite all the controversy surrounding his rise, far-right former army captain won 55% of the vote in Sunday’s elections and will become Brazil’s next president on 1 January. “It is the end of an awful period,” says TozziniFreire Advogados’ CEO and head of litigation Fernando Serec. “We have been in a terrible governmental limbo and the election is the epilogue of a horrendous transitional period and sets a different mood in the country.”
