Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro, who is running for re-election, is casting doubt on the fairness of the country's electoral processes. Some observers infer that Bosonaro is sowing doubt about the country's election system so that he can ensure his own victory in the country's October election, or dispute the results if he loses. Right-wing Bolsonaro is flailing in the polls against Luiz Ignacio Lula Ignacio da Silva, the leftist former president who served from 2003-2010. Brazil is one of the largest democracies in the world, is the third largest export market for the U.S. in the Western Hemisphere, and is of significant strategic importance.
