Bolsonaro sustained a liver injury in a knife attack during the campaign rally on September 6.

The presidential election will be held in Brazil alongside the parliamentary vote. The first round of the presidential election is scheduled for October 7. The second round is set to be held on October 28 if the 50-percent threshold would not be met by any candidate.

According to fresh poll data, 28 percent of the voters are ready to support Bolsonaro at the upcoming election.
