Bolsonaro questions electoral integrity in Brazil despite repeated debunking from electoral authorities.

President Bolsonaro in Brazil questions electoral integrity despite authorities repeatedly debunking claims, leading to fears of rejecting election results as polls indicate a potential loss in a second term.

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro invited diplomats to the presidential palace to raise his concerns about vulnerabilities of the country’s electronic voting system, despite the fact that electoral authorities have already debunked these false claims on several occasions. His speech was aired on state television for around an hour. Bolsonaro did not present any evidence for his claims and so, members of the electoral authority and analysts, fear he is laying the groundwork to reject election results. Especially since polls show the current President is unlikely to win a second term.
