Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (born October 27, 1945), known simply as Lula, is a Brazilian politician who was President of Brazil from January 1, 2003 to January 1, 2011. He is a founding member of the Workers' Party (PT) and ran for president three times unsuccessfully, first in the 1989 election, then again in 1994 and 1998. Lula achieved victory in the 2002 election, and was inaugurated as president on January 1, 2003. In the 2006 election he was elected for a second term as president, which ended on January 1, 2011. Succeeded by his former Chief of Staff, Dilma Rousseff, he left an enduring mark on Brazilian politics in the form of Lulism.

He has been called one of the most popular politicians in the history of Brazil and while in office was one of the most popular in the world. Social programs like Bolsa Família and Fome Zero are hallmarks of his time in office. Lula played a prominent role in international relations, including the nuclear program of Iran and global warming, and was described as "a man with audacious ambitions to alter the balance of power among nations." He was featured in Time's 2010 The 100 Most Influential People in the World, and Perry Anderson called him "the most successful politician of his time." In October 2011, Lula—who was a smoker for 40 years—was diagnosed with throat cancer and began chemotherapy. Since then he has successfully recovered and resumed his roles.

In early 2016, Lula was appointed Chief of Staff under Rousseff, but Justice Gilmar Mendes of the Supreme Federal Court blocked the appointment due to ongoing federal investigations. In Brazil the presidential chief of staff is a cabinet-level position that requires charges of malfeasance to be tried in a special court. On July 12, 2017, the former president was convicted of money laundering and passive corruption, defined in Brazilian criminal law as the receipt of a bribe by a civil servant or government official. He was sentenced to nine years and six months in prison by judge Sérgio Moro but remains free pending an appeal of the sentence; if the court upholds Moro's decision, Lula would be ineligible to run in the 2018 presidential election as he has said he would.
