This is great news for the fans of one of Brazil’s most beloved politicians. After 5 months of treatment, the former president posted a video yesterday saying his cancer was in “complete remission”, and that he will be returning to political life.
Above is his video, in Portuguese, but here is a link to a Reuters video with some English-language dubbing.
Though Dilma has made a name for herself and is popular, Lula is likely still the most influential politician in Brazil. His presence will be felt.
