Politique Internationale, specialized in diplomacy, justified her decision with the “hope that da Silva embodies in the eyes of the vast majority of his compatriots, disappointed by Bolsonaro’s presidency.”

The journal also highlighted “the exemplary tenacity” of da Silva “in the face of political and judicial persecution”, which was “rewarded with the decision of the Supreme Court to annul his sentences.”

His presidency between 2003 and 2010 was also “marked by the will to promote racial and social equality in his country,” allowing “30 million Brazilians to rise out of poverty.”

According to the site, the former president recently dedicated this award “to the Brazilian people,” in particular, “to the comrades who remained by my side when I was imprisoned in Curitiba,” he stressed.

Da Silva said last month that he will define at the beginning of next year if he will present his candidacy for the presidential elections of October 2022 against Bolsonaro.
