(PatriotWise.com) – Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, a socialist, won the Brazilian presidential election, and supporters of conservative president Jair Bolsonaro have been protesting the outcome ever since.
Like Dominion’s method, the Brazilian voting process is entirely electronic and unverifiable. Brazilian voters do not trust the fairness of this year’s elections.
The Superior Electoral Court, which oversees elections in Brazil, is charged with taking a biased stance throughout the conflict.
The Court frequently intervened to stop President Jair Bolsonaro’s campaign from releasing damaging information about Lula da Silva and other leftists. The Bolsonaro team even stopped footage of da Silva defending abortion from being broadcast publicly.
The president of the Superior Electoral Court, Minister Alexandre de Moraes, is well-known for opposing Jair Bolsonaro. De Moraes took a number of actions during the election against the president’s campaign, including censorship, which the Federal Constitution of Brazil expressly outlaws.
After the elections, a significant part of Brazilians developed mistrust for the openness of the computerized voting system. Following the publication of an inspection report by the Armed Forces, public distrust grew even more.
The inspection of the electronic voting machines was open to the armed forces. The military released a report on the inspection following the resolution of the dispute.
In the document made public by the military, the military claimed that they could not conduct a complete examination of the voting system and gave some evidence pointing to significant flaws in the electronic voting machines.
Several people have been demonstrating outside military facilities nationwide after the elections. They assert that the Armed Forces have taken a strong stance against the electoral process that certified Lula da Silva’s victory.
People of all ages participate in nonviolent demonstrations. They are asking the military to support an election with transparency. However, not everyone agrees that the election results should be thrown out.
Since the conclusion of the elections, President Jair Bolsonaro has stayed private, infrequently posting to his social media accounts.
