2022 Presidential Election in Brasil

Bolsonaro was described as a top target of the Left heading into his 2022 re-election campaign.[27] The official results showed that former Socialist President, Lula da Silva won against Bolsonaro in the first round that was held on October 2, both candidates passed to the second round of October 30 in which the results also flipped in favor of Lula. President Bolsonaro picked general Walter Souza Braga Netto as Vice President candidate.[28] President Trump supported Bolsonaro in the election affirming that “has done a great job for the wonderful people of Brazil.”[29] and that Bolsonaro will “never let you down” as well as that he is respected worldwide.

During the campaign, the Bicentennial of the Independence of Brazil happen.[30][31] Neymar football player supported Bolsonaro.

The Supreme Electoral Court censored (in collaboration with Big Tech)[32] a lot of posts in support of President Bolsonaro in Social Media, alleging “Fake News” against Lula when calling him corrupt. The main counterweight to the power of President Jair Bolsonaro was the Supreme Federal Court of Brazil. Now many fear that the organism will become a threat.[33] The Supreme Electoral Court President, Alexandre de Morães, ordered the arrest of a conservative congressman, Daniel Silveira, center, after Silveira criticized Morães and other court judges.[34]

In both rounds of the election Bolsonaro started winning in the counting of the votes until the end in which the results started favoring Lula (very similar to what happened in the United States in 2020).[35][36][37] The voting system in Brazil is totally electronic since 1996[38] with machines and not physical ballots, President Bolsonaro tried to reform it but the Judicial System blocked the reform alleging it wasn’t possible to implement and the Congress supported it with 229 votes in favor against 218 against but that wasn’t enough to reform the Constitution.[39][40][41]

Communications Minister Fábio Faria said that 154,085 paid radio campaign ads for Bolsonaro were not broadcast in Brazil from October 7-21, 2022.[42] In Brazil the institution that organizes elections is run by the Judicial Branch that has many judges introduced by the Worker’s Party (PT).

Bolsonaro said that with physical ballots he wouldn’t have questions about the voting system, and that the military should watch the voting process. “Accepting proposals from the Armed Forces, the chances of fraud are close to zero. If you have a security system for your home, will you accept it or not? Why don’t other countries adopt this system? Can we no longer question? […] Where will this authoritarian escalation go? […] Clean and transparent elections should not be questioned anywhere. How much do I trust from 0 to 10 in the polls? I trust ’10’ in Paraguay, Colombia, Chile, France, which is the vote on paper. For the rest, we have to be concerned. […] I initially supported the electronic vote, then the printed vote. […] Parliamentarians like Simone Tebet, Roberto Requião, Ciro Gomes have already defended a printed vote. Now, am I wrong? I want transparency” said the President.[43][44][45][46][47]

They did the same thing to Jair Bolsonaro as to Keiko Fujimori in Peru in 2016, where they both obtained a parliamentary majority but lost the Presidency. Bolsonaro’s candidates won important State governorships such as Sao Paulo.[48]

An statistic anomaly with a chance of 0% occurred on the difference of the votes between both candidates, when the difference was normal at first, since the 70% every update only added more votes to Lula than to Bolsonaro until the end of the count, this is explicit in the graphic that at first shows a normal difference with spikes and the lines become plain at the end.[49]
In the Brazilian system the invalid votes are put in place by the machines when a candidate is not recognized, this sparked suspicion on how many valid votes were transformed into invalid. The invalid and blank votes could have made a different in the alleged result as they combined are 5.7 million votes, more than the difference of 2.13 votes between the two candidates according to the official results.

Lula da Silva was proclaimed as the winner by the media, President Bolsonaro didn’t object or say anything after the election even several hours later.[50][51][52] Alexandre de Morães, the President of the Supreme Electoral Court (Tribunal Superior Electoral, TSE) repeats that the elections are fair. The Brazilian Army supports Bolsonaro.[53]

Steve Bannon commented “It is not possible for the result of the electronic ballot boxes to be correct, it is necessary to audit ballot box by ballot box, even if this takes six months, during which time the president should not accept to leave”, he also said that he knows that Bolsonaro and his family is hearing him.[54][55]

Truckers went on strike in support of the protesters on 18 states and more than 26 highways after the results were published accusing electoral fraud.[56][57][58][59] The Brazilian Army supports Bolsonaro.[60]

The Brazilian people also started calling for a military intervention saying “Our flag will never be red!” and “Lula, thief, your place is prison”[61][62][63][64] and an audit by them.[65] A leftist harmed some Brazilian Patriots using his car to run over them.[66]

On November 1, 2022, almost two days after the results were shown, Bolsonaro said “I want to begin by thanking the 58 million Brazilians who voted for me. The acts of popular movement are the result of indignation and feelings of injustice about how the electoral process was conducted. Peaceful demonstrations will always be welcome, but the methods cannot be those of the left, which always preached the invasion of property, the destruction of patrimony. The right really emerged in our country, our robust representation in Congress shows the strength of our values, God, country, family and freedom. Our dream is more alive than ever, we are for order and progress. Even facing the whole system we overcame a pandemic and the consequences of a war. I have always been labeled as antidemocratic and unlike my accusers I have always played within the four lines of the constitution. I have never spoken of controlling or censoring the media or social networks. As president of the Republic and as a citizen I will continue to fulfill all the commandments of our Constitution. It is an honor to be the leader of millions of Brazilians who, like me, defend the economic freedom, religious freedom, freedom of opinion, honesty, and the GREEN and YELLOW colors of our flag. Thank you very much.”

After Bolsonaro’s statement, the Minister of the Presidency, Ciro Nogueira, said he is responsible in the Government for the transition of power process, did refer to Lula as “president-elect”. “Based on the law, we will start the transition process,” Nogueira said.[67][68]

On November 4, a video made by an Argentinian about a private audit started circulating on internet, the video is called #BrazilWasStolen and can only be found in Alt Tech such as Odysee and Rumble. The main argument is that in all machines from to 2020 (audited) had more votes for Bolsonaro, while the machines made prior to the 2020 (non-audited) model have significantly less votes, the machines were compared in the same districts, explaining that neighbors that tend to vote similarly change the pattern in the base of the machines.
