A Brazilian Supreme Court judge on Monday ordered the overturning of all convictions of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva for corruption, making him potentially eligible to face Jair Bolsonaro in the 2022 presidential election.

Judge Edson Fachin took this decision which had the effect of a bomb in Brazil by arguing that the court of Curitiba (south) which had convicted Lula in four trials was “not competent” to judge these cases. The price of the Brazilian stock market fell following this announcement.
