President Jair Bolsonaro returned today to defending the printing of votes in Brazil, although he still does not present evidence that there is fraud in the electoral system. After “motociata” in Florianópolis (SC), broadcast on social networks, he spoke to supporters.
“I have been warning that we have to have clean elections in Brazil. Those who do not want clean elections and public counting of votes can be everything, but they are not Democrats, and those who are not Democrats have no place in our Brazil”, said Bolsonaro.
He again defended the printed and auditable vote. “You are the ones who decide the elections. It will not be one or two STF ministers who will decide the fate of a nation. Who has legitimacy besides the president (of the Republic) is the National Congress”, he declared.
The Proposed Amendment to the Constitution (PEC) that changes the voting system was defeated in the special commission, but the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Arthur Lira (Progressistas-AL), said he decided to take the discussion about the printed vote to the plenary. .
Bolsonaro spoke about Venezuelans who came to Brazil and joked that “hundreds of people a day flee the socialist paradise of Venezuela” to come here. “We know how that regime started, who supported that regime, I don’t need to say it’s the nine-fingered bandit,” he said, under shouts of “Lula thief”, referring to former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) .
