SAO PAULO: Brazil’s far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro is “fomenting violence” and is a danger to democracy, his leftist rival Fernando Haddad told AFP on Saturday.
Haddad, trailing in the polls ahead of an October 28 runoff, argued against Bolsonaro’s pledge to ease gun laws for citizens to combat rampant insecurity and highlighted contentious remarks Bolsonaro has made.
“My adversary foments violence, including a culture of rape,” Haddad said, recalling an episode when Bolsonaro told a congresswoman she didn’t “deserve” to be raped by him.
