Incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro disputes the result of the presidential election held last month in Brazil, concluded by his defeat against Luiz Inacio “Lula” da Silva, shows an appeal filed with the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), to which he asks to carry out an “extraordinary verification” of the votes.
This appeal, which CNN Brazil first reported, has little chance of succeeding, as Lula’s victory has already been ratified by the TSE and recognized by Brazil’s main political leaders and the country’s international partners, including the States. -United.
A small section of the Brazilian electorate, largely in the minority but determined, refuses, on the other hand, to recognize the defeat of Jair Bolsonaro.
According to CNN Brazil, this appeal by the outgoing far-right president denounces “irreparable non-conformities” of certain voting machines, likely to “tarnish” the result of the ballot which led to the victory of his opponent on the left.
The TSE did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
