The deputy Gleisi Hoffmann, president of the workers party (PT), considered this Tuesday that “it is not normal” that pockets of Bolsonaro protests persist in Brazil calling for a “military coup” against the choice of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
“It is not normal for there to be people at the gate of the barracks” and that “a military intervention is requested” to prevent the investiture of Lula, on January 1, after having defeated the president at the polls Jair Bolsonaro on October 30, Hoffmann told reporters.

The president of the PT also considered that, in the event that these demonstrations persist, “the institutions must act firmly and give a political response” to these protests.
