Guilherme Boulos (PSOL) will face Mayor Bruno Covas (PSDB) in the second round of the municipal election in São Paulo. The homeless movement activist, who was in a technical tie with Márcio França (PSB) and Celso Russomanno (Republicans) in Datafolha's latest poll, confirmed the upward curve of his campaign and the electorate's rejection of Jair Bolsonaro. The president's allies, like Russomanno, lost badly.
In addition to sanitary and pandemic remoteness measures, the election suffered technological problems. The totalization of votes suffered an unprecedented delay.
Abstention was the highest in 20 years. It reached 29.3% in São Paulo.
