BackgroundEdit

The campaign happened in the context of the ongoing political crisis and the fallout after the recently impeached president Dilma Rousseff, of the Workers' Party (PT).[3] This event played a huge role in the election, which would see a weakened Worker's Party (PT). The election saw the resurgence of the Brazilian Social Democratic Party (PSDB) with Doria emerging as their leading candidate in opposition to the Worker's Party, which was suffering a steady decline following Dilma's impeachment.

Incumbent mayor Fernando Haddad ran a reelection campaign on keeping the left-wing status-quo, in contrast to Doria's campaign, which emphasized mostly socially liberal economic reforms, as part of the "liberal wave" following the fallout of Dilma's impeachment. Among other candidates were Celso Russomano (PRB), Marta Suplicy (PMDB), Altino Prazeres (PSTU), Ricardo Young (REDE), João Bico (PSDC), Levy Fidelix (PRTB), Luiza Erundina (PSOL) and Major Olímpio (SD).
