Political killings overshadow Brazilian elections

The gunning down of a string of candidates ahead of nationwide municipal elections this Sunday is stoking fears that Brazil’s toxic politics are headed into dangerous new territory. The main headline from Sunday’s polls is expected to be the hammering of the leftist Workers’ Party, which many here blame for Brazil’s punishing recession and sprawling corruption scandals. Already reeling from the impeachment of former president Dilma Rousseff and her replacement by center-right rival Michel Temer, the once-dominant Workers’ Party looks set to lose a slew of local seats, including the mayor of Brazil’s biggest city Sao Paulo.
