2020 Rio Mayor election winner odds
Among fourteen candidates to win the Rio de Janeiro mayoral election in 2020, two favorites stand out from the crowd. They are Marta Rocha from the Democratic Labour Party and Eduardo Paes representing Democrats.
By 22Bet Sportsbook odds, Eduardo Paes is the number one candidate to become the new head of the city. The democrat’s chances to win the election are the best as well as odds – 1.14. This is Paes’ third time running for mayor since serving two terms in 2009-2016. Marcello Crivella, the sitting mayor of Rio, seems to disappoint its residents since they are looking for the previous one to be back. Additionally, Crivella loses to Paes in odds as well – he has only 5.95 odds on his victory.
On the other hand, Marta Rocha is the strongest rival to Paes this year. With 5.55 odds at 22Bet, the candidate from the Democrat Labour Party previously was the first woman to head the Civil Police in the history of Rio. Additionally, she was elected for state congress six years ago, though she ran unsuccessfully in 2002 and 2006. According to the 2020 Rio mayor election winner predictions, Rocha will be the major rival of Paes, but the latter is predicted to head the city again.
