Sao Paulo – Former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the front-runner in Brazil’s presidential election in October, got married in a ceremony on a political touch on Wednesday.

The 76-year-old left-wing politician, who was president from 2003-2010 and led by ruling right-wing President Zaire Bolsonaro in all opinion polls, married sociologist Rosanzella Silva, 55, before 150 guests who once sang her old and new campaign songs.

This was Lula’s third marriage, as she is known to Brazilians. His two previous wives – Maria de Lordes da Silva and Marissa Leticia – have died.

Lula began his relationship with his new wife, nicknamed Janza, in 2017, when he was in prison after being convicted of corruption, which was later overturned by Brazil’s Supreme Court.

“I decided to remarry because I believe Brazil can be stable,” Lula Roman said during the Catholic ceremony, according to a statement. “A man who is 76 years old and in love like me, willing to get married, he just wants the best for this country.”

Lula’s biography was quickly updated on social media channels that she is now “Janjar’s husband”.

The location of the wedding in Sওo Paulo was kept secret until Wednesday afternoon for fear of protests by Bolsonaro supporters, like other Lula events. Guests included artists, including the politician, the couple’s old friend and Grammy Award winner Gilberto Gill.

When they left, they received souvenirs with an embroidered inscription, “O Amar Vensu” (Love has won). Lula, in her speech, linked the latter to Balsonaro’s campaign, trying to identify the presidential race as a battle between love and hate.
