The Armed Forces of Brazil corroborated this Wednesday the veracity of the result of the elections in Brazil, in which Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva defeated the president Jair Bolsonaro.

The report presented by the Ministry of Defense to the electoral justice confirms the “conformity” of the election results with the samples made by the military at the polls during the voting days, October 2 and 30.

The military did not point out any irregularities in their report, but they say that due to the complexity of the electronic voting system, they were unable to thoroughly inspect it.

For this reason, they underlined that they cannot affirm that the system “it is exempt from the influence of any malicious code that could alter its operation” and they suggest that the electoral justice adopt measures to facilitate the inspection of the ballot boxes.

The Superior Electoral Court (TSE) received with satisfaction the report of the Armed Forces that “he did not point out the existence of any fraud or inconsistency in the electronic ballot boxes”which have been used in the country since 1996.

“The TSE reaffirms that the electronic ballot boxes are a source of national pride and that the 2022 elections verify the efficiency, fairness and total transparency of the vote count”, the court said in a statement.

President Jair Bolsonaro led a campaign to discredit the voting system in Brazil, raised suspicions that fraud was possible and even threatened that the elections would not be held if the vote did not have a paper receipt, a proposal that was rejected by Congress.

Bolsonaro, of the Liberal Party (PL), took two days to rule on the election results and, although he did not admit his defeat against Lula, which occurred by a narrow margin of 1.8 percentage points, he did allow transition will start.

The president of the PL, Valdemar Costa Neto, conditioned the recognition of Bolsonaro’s defeat to what the report made by the military said.

Far-right groups that support Bolsonaro They have demonstrated against the results of the elections and have called for an intervention by the Armed Forces to prevent Lula’s investiture, scheduled for next January 1.

At least 300 truck drivers went to the Army headquarters in Brasilia on Wednesday to continue pressuring the military to carry out a coup, a position rejected by all institutions.
