The Brazilian left will enter October’s presidential election united after the far left PSTU and the Communist Party agreed to join an electoral alliance with the new radical Party of Socialism and Liberty, P-Sol.

Heloisa Helena, a P-Sol senator, will stand as the united left presidential candidate. She is currently third in the opinion polls, standing at 8 percent, and her support is growing.

Heloisa is a popular figure in Brazil who will offer a left wing challenge to the ruling president Lula’s support for neo-liberal policies and his decision to commit Brazilian troops to the occupation forces in Haiti.
