Jair Bolsonaro Challenges the Election – Some Machines Not Auditable

Brazil’s former President, Jair Bolsonaro, has launched a challenge to the presidential election he recently lost to Lula da Silva, arguing that there are votes from some machines that should be “invalidated.”

Mr. Bolsonaro said the election machines are not auditable.

Reuters reports that the challenge is unlikely to succeed since the Superior Electoral Court ratified the election, and Trudeau and Biden congratulated Lula. Why does it matter that those two congratulated Lula?

Brazil’s former President, Jair Bolsonaro, has launched a challenge to the presidential election he recently lost to former and now President-elect Lula da Silva. Bolsonaro argues that there are votes from some machines that should be “invalidated,” reports Reuters.

The justice who leads the Superior Electoral Court, Alexandrew de Moraes, issued a ruling that reads that “Bolsonaro’s right-wing electoral coalition, which filed the complaint, must present its full audit for both rounds of last month’s vote within 24 hours, or he would reject it,” Reuters reports.

Lula’s Workers Party’s head said the bid was mere “chicanery.” She advocated for the challenge not to proceed and for Brazil to let the results that saw her pick to put in power stand.

But for Jair Bolsonaro and his coalition, the challenge is due to the runoff election, during which they say there were “signs of irreparable … malfunction” in some electric voting machines.

Truckers are still blocking roads in support of Jair Bolsonaro or just in opposition to what they believe is a rigged election. People don’t see how corrupt, formerly imprisoned Lula could have won.

As Trudeau did in Canada, the Superior Court is seizing protester funds.

Mr. Bolsonaro said the election machines are not auditable. That sounds like the problem we have in Arizona, California, Pennsylvania, Georgia, etc.

Brazil is far too united for them to allow a communist takeover. These are the largest protests in world history. The President submitted the challenge to the communist court as a preliminary action. The military has the legal right in Brazil to nullify an election. Many sources have verified this, I hope this site does not claim the opposite. This is Brazilian law. I doubt Faux News will tell its viewers that. The military has no choice but to nullify the election. The police are also supportive of that. We see in the protests military and police warmly greeting the protesters.
