Bolsonaro fined instead of electoral victory

-

Another bankruptcy from Brazil’s voted President Bolsonaro: The electoral court dismisses his party PL’s “strange and unacceptable claim” against electoral defeat.


Brazil’s Supreme Electoral Court rejected President Jair Bolsonaro’s complaint about his party’s election results and fined him a large sum of money. President of the Court, Alexandre de Moraes, said the Liberal Party (PL) did not present any evidence of alleged malfunctions in hundreds of thousands of voting machines. Therefore, it refused to control the votes cast on these voting machines.

Court says “evil”

De Moraes spoke of, among other things, the “utter bad faith of the bizarre and inadmissible application”, evidenced by the “complete absence of any evidence of irregularity” and the fraudulent presentation of the facts. The court fined the party 23 million reais (approximately 4.1 million euros) for finding the request malicious.

PL asked the Supreme Electoral Court on Tuesday to invalidate all votes cast using more than 280,000 voting machines. PL claimed that the “faults” of these machines prevented Bolsonaro from being re-elected.

Liberal Party sees Bolsonaro as real winner

Left-leaning ex-president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva narrowly won the presidential election against Bolsonaro three weeks ago. In the second round, Lula received 50.9 percent and Bolsonaro 49.1 percent. PL had calculated that if the votes from the defective voting machines were cancelled, Bolsonaro would receive 51.05 percent of the vote and would still be the winner of the election.

Bolsonaro initially did not comment on his post-election defeat. Just two days later, the far-right signaled its willingness to hand over power peacefully to Lula, without openly admitting defeat.
