Live Poll: The 2010 Dekade: Persons of International Interest

Preface:

I don't know, if polls are allowed, if they touch political content. But I've also seen that there are social issues picked up in some polls. So - how political may a poll be? Where is the border?

Intro:

Which of these persons of international interests is your favorite? Discuss here.

Rules:

Living persons with political, financial or social heavyweight. The biggest influencers on earth, no second row - which means something like people who are the biggest of their countries and have to be known through news media. No dead persons, except they had a very big role in the 2010s.  Rules are pretty expendable on tat issue. ;D

I'm trying to be neutral to give people really the chance to pick their favorite.
If this really goes online, you can pick who ever you want, and for the "other"
guys you can throw some darts on the screen. ;)

Another option is another Brazilian president Lula da Silva, I would say he is more important than Bolsonaro, who only lead a group of people trying to stop the popularity of the left wing leader.

da Silva was considered the most important person in the Latin American left, he had a big influence outside his country, and still is a major figure in Brazil.

Thank you for suggesting this politician, but I can't remember him. I just ask myself how he could be a person of international interests? I must admit, that I didn't always have the whole world on the radar, but please tell me more about him. Fromm all the others on the list I saw news about what happened. This politician seems to work in the background, is it?

Not in the background at all, he was President of Brazil from 2003 to 2011. While this is mostly in the wrong decade, he was also influential during the 2010's.

He turned his country into the 8th biggest economy of the world, and was essential for Rio to win the 2016 Summer Olympics.

After leaving the presidency he was chief of staff for his succesor, Dilma Roussef, until he was accused of a corruption scandal and put in prison, but many believe he's innocent.

During the 2018 presidential campaign, that eventually was won by Bolsonaro, Lula intended to be a candidate and was by far more popular, reaching 33% of the vote intention over Bolsonaro's 15%. He was, however, forced to abandon the campaign after going into prison.

He was freed in 2019, but the issue is bound to remain giving news for a lot of time.

There's more about him here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luiz_In%C3%A1cio_Lula_da_Silva

There's also a Netflix series, O Mecanismo, a dramatic fiction based on the real case corruption scandal
And the Oscar nominee Documentary The Edge of Democracy is about him. So you can say he is also influential in movies.

That's interesting. I will put him on the list. Would you do a favour and give me a smaller, but still informing text for Mr. Lula Da Silva? I want the necessary information for the poll in a as small as can text. Would you, please? Thank you. :D

To paraphrase Elmo, "You know you're important when your name becomes an -ism": The concept of Lulism derives from Lula and influences leaders even in other Latin American countries.

Sorry Breu. I had missed your first message.

It could be: 35th President of Brazil, and leader of the Latin American left.
