According to the president of the TSE, the petition does not have any indication that justifies the revaluation of a part of the ballot boxes.

“The total bad faith of the plaintiff in his extravagant and unlawful request, ostensibly offensive to the Democratic Rule of Law and carried out in an inconsequential manner with the purpose of encouraging criminal and anti-democratic movements (…) was proven, both by the refusal to add the initial request, and by the total absence of indications of irregularities and the existence of a totally fraudulent narrative of the facts.”pointed out the magistrate in his decision.

In the presidential runoff Lula was imposed with 50.9% of the votes, compared to 49.1% that obtained Bolsonaroin a process endorsed and recognized as transparent by all the national and international observer missions that participated.

Given the order of the highest electoral authority, the PL announced that it had already activated its legal advisors to analyze the decision of the TSE.
