Far-right congressmanJair Bolsonaro has won over many voters by painting a picture of a Brazil at war - with criminals, corrupt politicians and leftist ideas that he says could turn the country into Venezuela - and promises to change the tide with force and clean governance.
Bolsonaro's victory over leftist candidate Fernando Haddad marks a lunge to the right for Latin America's largest country, after a divisive campaign marked by widespread outrage at the political class - but also fears over Bolsonaro's denigrating remarks about women, gays and blacks.
Bolsonaro went into Sunday the clear front-runner after getting 46 percent of the vote to Haddad's 29 percent in the first round of voting on October 7, when 13 contenders were on the ballot.
During the presidential campaign, Bolsonaro announced that he would not accept the election results unless he won.
On Sunday evening, defeated candidate Fernando Haddad did not make the traditional congratulatory phone call to Mr Bolsonaro.

He often took to Twitter to lambaste the rival Workers' Party as unethical and unsafe.
Haddad, 55, is standing as a surrogate for jailed ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who led Brazil through the boom years of 2003 to 2010. But the hugely divisive Workers' Party founder was barred from running because he is serving a 12-year prison sentence.
But the election also revealed that the historical divisions between Brazil's northern and southern regions remains significant, with the relatively poor north-east (which supported Haddad) establishing itself as a left-wing bastion.
Haddad narrowed Bolsonaro's lead to 8 percentage points in an Ibope poll released late Saturday, a survey that gave him 46 percent compared with Bolsonaro's 54 percent.
