Brasília (AFP) – Brazil on Wednesday lashed out at a demand by former European leaders for disgraced ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva to be allowed to take part in elections this year. Brazilian Foreign Minister Aloysio Nunes responded that because Lula had lost an appeal against his graft conviction he had automatically lost the right to run for public office.
