Highlights: Presidential candidate Lula will not attend the inauguration of the new president of Brazil. Lula is expected to attend the swearing-in ceremony on January 25. The president-elect will be sworn in on January 26. The inauguration will take place in front of a crowd of 100,000 people at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro. The event will be followed by a press conference in which the president will announce the results of the election. The winner of the presidential election will be announced on January 28.


After Milei's election, Brazil's minister of social communication said the libertarian owes Lula an apology for his offenses. The one who did confirm his presence at Sunday's inauguration is former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.


Brazil's President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva rejected Javier Milei's invitation to his presidential inauguration next Sunday and will send his foreign minister Mauro Vieira instead.

The Brazilian Presidency confirmed to EFE that Vieira will go to Buenos Aires in the place of President Lula da Silva, who received insults from the libertarian during the elections.

After the announcement of the results of the elections in Argentina, Lula published a message on social networks in which, without mentioning Milei, he wished success to the future government.

"I wish the new government good luck and success. Argentina is a great country and deserves all our respect. Brazil will always be available to work alongside our Argentine brothers," the Brazilian president said at the time.

Following Milei's election, Brazil's Minister of Social Communication, Paulo Pimenta, said Argentina's president-elect owes Lula an apology for the offenses he uttered on him during the campaign.

Lula maintains close relations with Peronist Sergio Massa, the defeated presidential candidate, and outgoing President Alberto Fernandez.

Milei has also invited former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, leader of the far-right and who is being investigated in the case that seeks to identify the promoters of the attempted coup d'état on January 8 in Brazil, to his investiture.
