Lula's last stand: Brazilian left divided ahead of presidential poll

Brazil’s electoral court has barred Lula from running for president from jail, where the former head of state is serving a 12-year sentence for corruption. Does his Workers Party move on and throw its support behind his number two Fernando Haddad, or fight for Lula until the bitter end? The election is now a month away. Will disillusion power the far right to office or signal the return of the military into politics? We also hear why the tragic museum fire in Rio has become a key campaign issue.


Produced by Michele BARBERO, Tommaso MAZZANTI and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.
