Bolsonaro himself has allowed the transition process to begin, although he has not come to publicly acknowledge his defeat at the polls.

The message from the military concludes by saying that the Army “knew how to interpret the desires of the people it serves”, an ambiguous phrase that has been interpreted by Bolsonaro groups, where false news proliferates, as an invitation to demonstrate.
