Former Brazilian Chief Justice Joaquim Barbosa on Tuesday formally withdrew his name from the country’s October presidential race. Barbosa called his decision “personal in nature.” He withdrew from the race in a statement to social media. The statement followed weeks of speculation after Barbosa formally joined the Brazilian Socialist Party. Some polls have given Barbosa 10% support in the presidential race in a crowded field. The former Chief Justice is known for his stern battle against corruption during a series of trials involving bribery and conspiracy accusations against top officials. His social and economic views are moderately left-leaning.
