President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva congratulated the new president of Paraguay, Santiago Peña, for his victory in the elections this Sunday (30).

The 44-year-old economist is the new president of Paraguay, after winning the single-round elections against Efraín Alegre, the left-wing coalition candidate.

The new president of Paraguay will take office on August 15, for a five-year term. Santiago belongs to the Colorado Party, which has ruled the country for over 70 years, and was elected with 42.67% of the votes.

In his Twitter account, Lula wished good luck in his mandate, and asked that both work together, for ever better relations between their countries and a united South America.
