More than 44 hours after the end of the elections, President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) broke his silence on poll results that indicated his defeat by PT Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Under pressure from the allies, the head of the executive branch did not directly recognize the victory of the enemy, but authorized the beginning of a change of government.

Together with ministers at the Alvorada Palace, in a speech lasting just over two minutes, Bolsonaro thanked him for the more than 58 million votes he received in the second round and promised to uphold the Constitution.

The president disapproved of the roadblocks set up by truck drivers protesting the election results. He also took the opportunity to criticize the electoral system.

“The current popular movements are the result of outrage and a sense of injustice over the way the electoral process was handled,” he stressed. “Peaceful demonstrations will always be welcome, but our methods cannot be the methods of the left, which have always harmed the population, such as the invasion of property, the destruction of heritage, the restriction of the right to enter and exit our country.”

Bolsonaro also singled out the bench elected to Congress and the allies who won elections for the country. “Our strong congressional representation shows the strength of our values: God, country, family, and freedom. We have formed several leaders in Brazil. Our dreams are still alive like never before. We are for order and progress,” he stressed.

The chief executive also complained about the criticism he has received during his years in office. “Even in the face of the whole system, we are overcoming the pandemic and the consequences of the war. I have always been branded as a non-democrat, and, unlike my accusers, I have always played within the four lines of the Constitution, ”he assured. “I never said that I would control or censor the media and social media. As President of the Republic and citizen, I will continue to fulfill all the precepts of our Constitution.”

He still considered himself the main representative of the right in Brazil. “I am honored to be the leader of the millions of Brazilians who, like me, defend economic freedom, freedom of religion, freedom of opinion, honesty and the green and yellow colors of our flag,” he concluded.

Following the President’s announcement, the Chief Minister of the Civic Chamber, Ciro Nogueira (PP-PI), had to confirm that the President had authorized the change of government.

Expectation

There were high expectations for Bolsonaro’s statement, which remained silent after his electoral defeat. Yesterday the press was invited to enter Alvorada around 2:30 pm. At 4:37 pm, the president came down to speak. He was accompanied by vice-candidate on the list Braga Netto and ministers: in addition to Ciro Nogueira, Marcelo Queiroga (health), Paulo Guedes (economics), Victor Godoy (education), Paulo Sergio Nogueira (defense), Anderson Torres. (Justice), Marcelo Sampaio (Infrastructure), Joaquim Leite (Environment), Carlos França (Foreign Affairs), Celio Faria (Government Secretary), Luis Eduardo Ramos (General Secretary) and Christian Brito (Women, Family and Human Rights).

Gilson Machado (former minister of tourism), Flavio Augusto Viana Rocha (special secretary for strategic affairs), Elio Negao (federal deputy) and Joao Roma (former minister of citizenship), and Eduardo Bolsonaro (senator and son of the president).

The absence of First Lady Michelle Bolsonaro and her sons Flavio Bolsonaro and Carlos Bolsonaro was noted, along with Minister of Communications Fabio Faria, who was in Sao Paulo, and Vice President of the Republic Hamilton Murao, who indicated that he was not a guest.

In front of the pulpit and a few seconds before the start of the speech, Bolsonaro said to Ciro Nogueira: “They will miss us.” However, it is not clear whether the chief executive had in mind the press or the population.

At the end of the statement, Bolsonaro was applauded by members of the government and allies. When he left, reporters asked if he would call Lula or admit defeat outright. The chief executive continued to walk and did not answer. Shortly thereafter, he went to the Federal Supreme Court for a meeting with court ministers.

Championship in Qatar and final in Moscow

Championship in Qatar and final in Moscow

To write without mentioning the World Cup, which started this week in Qatar, could be considered pedantic. I don’t want to fall into this trap. So, from what has happened so far, I highlight the courage of the Iranian team, which was silent, did not sing when their national anthem was played. This attitude was extraordinary. This emphatically marked the support of the players for the people of their country, who were on the streets for weeks to challenge the medieval rule of the Shia clerics and fight for freedom and equality in the treatment of all, men and people. women. This is not a mixture of football and politics. There are others, at the top of the state, who do this. Yes, this is a memory that human rights should be above all. Whenever politics is built on this basis at the domestic and international levels, the world will be completely different, more harmonious and benevolent. And less cynically, in the political sphere.

The show, set in Qatar, reminds us of three important facts. First, the diversity of the peoples of the globe. The culture of each of them must be respected and appreciated. We always have the opportunity to learn something from others. And racism has no place either in sports or in everyday life. Secondly, there are rivers of money flowing around football. I’m not talking about the billions spent by the host country. I will only mention that the great football teams are in the northern hemisphere: of the 32 participants in the tournament, about 22 come from the richest countries. This game is played in almost every corner of the world, big stars are known everywhere, but without resources there are no victories, without currency clubs and tackles nothing more than a fraudulent stock. Thirdly, football revives primal nationalisms, anything as long as you win, including the blessing of the hand of God, in the famous version of Maradona. Not the best will win, but my selection. This is not a sport, this is blinding anything, with a lit candle and faith in God.

Raul Mariano Júnior, judge of the 8th Federal Court of Campinas/SP, ordered the Union to pay 100,000 reais in moral damages to his son under a political amnesty, dismissed in July 1983 after participating in a strike from Petrobras. The decision was made last Monday (21).

The Union demanded prescription, administrative competence, and lack of evidence of actual damage, causation, and civil liability.

The federal judge, having analyzed the case (5000688-35.2021.4.03.6105), recognized the right of the heirs to compensation for non-pecuniary damage and the inevitability of a claim for damages in connection with political persecution during the military dictatorship (1964-1985).

According to the justice of the peace, “dissatisfaction with the resignation of the author’s father in connection with his participation in the general strike of oil workers does not require interrogation and evidence. His daily routine was suddenly interrupted and his dignity was offended by actions that were considered subversive, which certainly affected his psychology due to the humiliation he suffered and the withdrawal from public life, ”said the federal judge.

The Minister of Justice has already announced the conditions for a political amnesty and provided economic compensation based on Law no. 10.559/2002. For a federal judge, this fact emphasizes the objective responsibility of the state.

According to the justice of the peace, the amount of compensation should “serve as a consolation to the victim and dissuade the perpetrator from committing other offenses due to the preventive and repressive nature.”

According to the Court of Santa Catarina (TJSC).
