Former Sao Paulo Mayor Fernando Haddad is the candidate of Brazil’s Workers’ Party (PT) in next month’s presidential elections, replacing ex-President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the party said Monday, reports AFP.

The announcement was made at a rally opposite the prison in the southern city of Curitiba, where Lula is serving a 12-year prison sentence on corruption-related charges.
