Caption,

Jair Bolsonaro lost the recent election by two percentage points.

The Higher Electoral Court of Brazil (TSE) has rejected the claim filed by the far-right party of Jair Bolsonaro to annul the results of the last presidential election.

Outgoing President Bolsonaro’s party contested some of the votes on election day in October in which he narrowly lost the presidency to leftist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

The Liberal Party (PL) requested the Electoral Tribunal to reject the votes of certain machines, which they ensure compromised during the second election round.

But the president of the TSE, Alexandre de Moraes, declared that the PL’s complaint was “an offense against democratic norms” and that it sought to “encourage criminal and anti-democratic movements.”
