On this Saturday, October 6, on his 73rd birthday, former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva wrote a letter asking for the Brazilian people to give him a very special present: that they go out in full force to the ballot boxes on Sunday, October 7th, and elect Fernando Haddad as President of the Republic so that the country can go back to being a Brazil of the people, of development and of the social programs. “October 6th is my official birthday. I hope to get my present on October 7th with the vote of the people in favor of Haddad for President,” Lula said. Read the whole letter here:
2. Lula, the most popular leader in Brazilian history, was born 73 years ago today. He was born in the semiarid region of Pernambuco, in the town of Caetés, but his birth was only registered on October 27th, the day he normally celebrates his birthday. Lula has a life story marked by fighting for the rights of workers which started in the unions of the ABCD region of greater São Paulo and culminated in his election to two consecutive mandates for President of the Republic (2003-2010) which propelled him into history as the greatest and most popular President Brazil ever had.

A hug to the greatest president that our nation has ever had, because he governed for everyone and prioritized taking care of the people who needed it the most.
