Brazil: President Jair Bolsonaro will not contest the result of the presidential election according to his communication minister

CTN News

Brazil’s far-right President Jair Bolsonaro’s statement is highly anticipated since his defeat in Sunday’s presidential election that saw his leftist opponent Luis Inacio Lula Da Silva win.

Brazil’s incumbent president will not contest his election defeat and is due to address the nation later on Tuesday, according to Communications Minister Fabio Faria in remarks reported by Reuters.

According to more than one, this speech of Jair Bolsonaro to possibly acknowledge his defeat could defuse the protests of his supporters who blocked the highways in many states across Brazil, as well as pro-Bolsonaro truckers who call him to challenge the electoral victory of the leftist Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva writes Reuters.

More than 48 hours after the presidential election ended in a runoff victory for Lula. Bolsonaro has not yet spoken publicly about the election result and had not called Lula after Sunday’s vote.

It should be noted that some of Jair Bolsonaro’s political allies, including his chief of staff Ciro Nogueira, and his justice minister, Judge Moro, who convicted Lula of corruption, have already accepted the victory of the Workers’ Party leader.

The president of the lower house of Congress called on the Bolsonaro government to respect the election results.
