Bolsonaro contests Brazil election, demands votes be anulled

Source: Associated Press

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is contesting his defeat in the October election and calling on the electoral authority to annul votes cast on most of the nation’s electronic voting machines, citing a software bug that independent experts have said didn’t affect the reliability of results.

Such an action would leave Bolsonaro with 51% of the remaining valid votes — and a reelection victory, Marcelo de Bessa, the lawyer who filed the 33-page request on behalf of the president and his Liberal Party, told reporters on Tuesday.

The electoral authority has already declared victory for Bolsonaro’s nemesis, leftist former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, and leading politicians, including many of the president’s allies, have accepted the results. Protesters in cities across the country have steadfastly refused to do the same, particularly with Bolsonaro declining to concede.

Party leader Valdemar Costa and an auditor hired by the party told reporters in Brasilia that their evaluation found all machines dating from before 2020 — nearly 280,000 of them, or about 59% of the total used in the Oct. 30 runoff — lacked individual identification numbers in internal logs.

Brazil: Jair Bolsonaro reportedly concedes election defeat amid severe unrest

Brazil's incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro appears to have accepted election defeat, reportedly telling members of the supreme court that “it’s over”.

That's after the outgoing president fell silent for nearly two days following Sunday's vote -- before failing to explicitly concede defeat in a press conference on Tuesday.

After a private meeting with Bolsonaro, Supreme Court Justice Luiz Edson Fachin said the conservative leader had admitted “it is over. So, let’s look ahead”. The justice made the comment in a video broadcast on local media.

9. I knew that he was too willing to accept defeat

At the 11th hour, he says he's staying. Who will the military side with?

No evidence that the military support him or supports overturning the election.
