Brazil elections 2018 at a glance

Thirteen politicians are vying to become the country's 38th president.

Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro leads the latest polls, with about 28 percent of the vote. Leftist candidate Fernando Haddad, who replaced the imprisoned yet widely popular former president Luiz Inacio "Lula" da Silva as the Workers' Party candidate earlier this month, trailed in second place with about 22 percent of support.

A second-round vote on October 28 is likely, with all recent polling pointing towards no contender winning more than 50 percent support in the first-round poll.

The successful candidate will begin a four-year term on January 1, 2019.
