The leading candidate in Brazil’s presidential election is in a serious but stable condition after being stabbed at a campaign rally, doctors said.

Jair Bolsonaro, 63, was stabbed in the city of Juiz de Fora, about 200km north of Rio de Janeiro, on Thursday.

The far-right presidential candidate underwent emergency surgery for a wound in the abdomen and could take two months to fully recover, said Dr Luiz Henrique Borsato, who operated on the candidate.

“His internal wounds were grave and put the patient’s life at risk,” Borsato said.

Bolsonaro is expected to spend at least a week in the hospital, he added.

Videos shared on social media showed Bolsonaro, whose agenda includes cracking down on crime in Latin America’s largest country, is carried through a crowd by his supporters when he is suddenly stabbed with a knife to the lower part of his stomach.

The attacker was arrested right away.

He was identified as Adelio Bispo de Oliveira, 40, who said he was “carrying out a divine mission, a mission from God”, according to Luis Boundens, head of a union of federal police officers.

Oliveira was affiliated with the leftwing Socialism and Liberty Party from 2007 to 2014, the party said in a written statement, in which it repudiated the violence.

Authorities are investigating the suspect’s mental health, police said.
