On the other hand, the personal approval of Lula, who is in rehabilitation after undergoing an operation to overcome severe pain in his hip, was at 55%, lower than the 57% in the previous survey.

The president of the CNT, Vander Costastated in a note that the social programs promoted since his inauguration, on January 1, and the fluid relationship with Congress have contributed to the popularity of Lula’s Government remaining above 40 percent.

He also stressed the need to “move forward in strengthening the economy, generating jobs and implementing reforms” for the development of the country, which this year will grow around 3%, according to market forecasts.

The director of the MDA Institute, Marcelo Souzawarned that the Lula Government’s approval rate could continue to decline in the coming months based on the poor expectations of the population in relation to some key areas, such as public security, work, health and education.

The results of the survey, which has a margin of error of 2.2 points, are the result of 2,002 in-person interviews carried out between September 27 and October 1 throughout the country.
