This week's episode looks back at national election results in both Brazil and Denmark. In Brazil, it took two rounds, but former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva narrowly defeated incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro to ensure he will enter 2023 as Brazil’s new leader. What were the demographic and geographic keys to Lula’s success? Why was the race much narrower than polls were originally expecting? Will this be the last of Bolsonaro’s career at the frontline of Brazilian politics? And has a “January 6th moment” been averted?

In Denmark, Mette Frederiksen looks set to continue as Danish Prime Minister after leading her Social Democratic Party to another victory, and a narrow majority for the traditional Red Bloc. Sam and Chern unpack the results as a whole and discuss what the new Government might look like. Will the Red Bloc hold, or will a new centrist Government be formed to break that mould? How did Frederiksen avoid the same fate as Magdalena Andersson earlier this year? What role will Rasmussen’s Moderates play after coming third? And what happened to the Venstre vote share? All these questions, and more, answered in this week's podcast.
