Lula with reply option to Bolsonaro’s misinformation in Brazil

Brasilia, Oct 20 (Prensa Latina) Brazil's Superior Electoral Court (TSE) granted former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva the right to reply in 226 radio and television programs in response to President Jair Bolsonaro's proselitizing campaign.

The site states that Lula´s campaign, presidential candidate for the Workers’ Party (PT) on the runoff vote, October 30, will have the right to 184 television spots, with 30 seconds each so as to respond to two advertisements.

One of them used manipulated data on votes in prisons and decontextualization of speeches given by the former labor leader, in order to associate him with criminality.

Lula will have the right to object in 164 television introductions so as to counteract the said disinformation.

Therefore, Bolsonaro will lose 184 TV publications until the runoff vote ends.

A third decision granted Lula’s campaign the right, in a total of 21 minutes, to challenge in 42 radio placements.

The Electoral Justice confirmed that, in the first round of the October 2 referendum, Lula got 48.43 percent of the valid votes, excluding blank and null votes, and Bolsonaro, who seeks a reelection for the Liberal Party, received 43.20 percent.

None of the candidates for Brazil’s presidency achieved an absolute majority of votes in this first round, more than half of the valid votes, as the Brazilian legislation establishes to be elected president.

Both politicians will compete in the runoff vote on the last Sunday of this month.
