Elections to watch in 2022

From Brazil to the Philippines, here are some of the most critical elections coming up around the world this year.

Jeremy Cliffe and Ido Vock in Berlin are joined by Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC to discuss some key elections that could shake up political dynamics across the world in 2022.

Has leftish, resurgent Lula da Silva shaken Jair Bolsonaro’s grip on Brazil? What will happen when Sweden’s first female prime minister Magdalena Andersson goes to the polls? And will the Donald Trump-endorsed Viktor Orbán cling on to power in Hungary?

Then, in You Ask Us, a listener wonders what it is going to take to prevent another member of the Marcos dynasty from occupying the presidential office in the Philippines.
