What can Lula deliver for Brazil? | Inside Story

As the saying goes, the third time's the charm. For newly sworn-in Brazilian president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, commonly known as 'Lula', it's a chance to take his nation in a new direction. He has inherited a bitterly divided country with a bleak economic outlook. And an Amazon rainforest suffering from the decisions of his predecessor, Jair Bolsonaro – who allowed extensive deforestation. Bolsonaro skipped the handover ceremony and is now in the United States. So, is this a new dawn for Brazil? and what challenges remain for its new leader?
