Members of several Brazilian political parties have asked the Supreme Electoral Court to ask President Jair Bolsonaro to explain his allegations of alleged electoral fraud in the country.
After years of talking about “fraud”, the Brazilian president admitted on Thursday that he had no evidence to support such allegations. For this reason, eleven parties have applied to the Higher Electoral Court for formal statements from the President who attacked the electronic voting machines.
Bolsonaro is said to have shown “false” news in a video and videos that have already been denied several times by official bodies, according to information from the news portal G1.
“To those who accuse me of failing to produce evidence, I return the allegation. Provide evidence that it is not fraudulent,” Bolsonaro said at one point. There is no way to prove that the elections were not rigged, “he insisted.” We have no evidence, I am very clear, but there is evidence that the same thing can happen in the elections for senators and MPs. Why not? ”Has manifested.
The various formations have therefore accused the President of criticizing opposition parties, MPs and senators who have acted against the interests of the President and of having committed “numerous crimes against the President of the Supreme Electoral Court”.
The question also suggests that the president is “trying to discredit the country’s democratic pillars” and damage the reliability of elections that “guarantee democratic change in strict reflection of the will of the people”.
