But Bolsonarodidn’t make the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff. The tough-on-crime candidate, who’s praised Brazil’s past military dictatorship, saw a surge in support after being stabbed at a rally in early September. He claimed fraud and faulty electronic voting systems robbed him of an outright victory. Meanwhile, Haddad hinted at a coalition with other rival candidates for the Oct. 28 runoff.
