Workers’ Party of Brazil denounces threats against elections

Workers’ Party of Brazil denounces threats against elections

Brasilia, Jul 6 (Prensa Latina) Lawmakers from Brazil's Workers' Party (PT) urged the Federal District Attorney's Office to take actions against General Walter Braga Netto over his latest threats to the electoral process, legislative sources confirmed on Wednesday.

The accusers called on the Federal Public Ministry to take relevant legal, civil and administrative measures against this senior official.

They also urged this ministry to request images and recordings of the ceremony held in June at the Industry Federation of Rio de Janeiro.

There, according to the O Globo daily, Braga Netto said that if a vote audit, defended by President Jair Bolsonaro, is not done, there will not be an election this year.

For PT members of Parliament, this is a serious threat to the independence of the Judicial Power and its members, especially to the Federal Court and an attack to republican institutions and the national democratic order.

The legislators are demanding that Braga Netto be prosecuted for incitement to crime.

To date, former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, a PT pre-candidate, is leading all the opinion polls in the election race, in which Bolsonaro intends to be re-elected.
