In a statement, Barros said that, according to the market, polls interfere with voters’ votes. He said that on account of the call “useful vote”there is a percentage of voters who “don’t want to lose the vote”.
According to the deputy, companies that declare that they did not intend to make mistakes will not have their sentences annulled, only reduced.
Barros said he cited the results of Ipec (formerly Ibope) DataFolha polls in the 1st round of the elections. He said that a model of information that is not verified is “useless” for the society.
“If you don’t know how to do research, disinformation doesn’t interest society. If you don’t have the technique, you don’t have the expertise, you don’t have the ability to do research that will hit the ballot box or if you think there are elements that change from the research to the ballot box, then there is no interest on the part of society in publishing this research”highlighted.
The federal deputy had already said on Monday (Oct 3, 2022) that he would present a project to criminalize election polls that indicate results different from what was found in the electronic voting machines.
according to Power 360 showed in this reportIpec and Datafolha made in the week of the 1st round showed more discrepancy in relation to the results of the presidential elections.
CPI of surveys
the deputies Eduardo Bolsonaro (PL-SP) and Carlos Jordy (PL-RJ) began collecting signatures for the opening of the CPI (Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry) which intends to investigate electoral research institutes.
in your profile at twitter, Jordy released the list of signatures collected until this Thursday (6.out.) with 33 deputies. By rule, 171 signatures are required, which corresponds to 1/3 of the total number of deputies.
The draft resolution to open the commission says it will investigate the “political use“ of polling companies “in order to influence the outcome of elections in favor of certain candidates, parties or political spectrum“.
After the result of the 1st round, the president Jair Bolsonaro (PL) also spoke about polling intentions. Bolsonaro’s criticisms were in reference to the forecast of the surveys of an alleged greater advantage of the former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT).
In front of Palácio da Alvorada, Bolsonaro told journalists that the fact that polls show more voting intentions for Lula helps his rival win more votes. According to him, after the results of these elections, this will no longer happen.
“Even because I don’t think they will continue doing research”said the Chief Executive.
The PL (Liberal Party) candidate stated that polls influence the results because part of the electorate votes for the candidate with more intentions so that a 2nd round is not necessary.
Bolsonaro also blamed the press for the result. “If there was an impartial press, the result would be different in the elections”declared.
