Brazilian Court Rules Ex-President Bolsonaro Must Wait Eight Years To Run For Office Again



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

The Brazilian Supreme Court ruled on Friday former President Jair Bolsonaro will not be allowed to run for office again until eight years have passed.

The decision comes after the ex-president valiantly fought to expose what he claimed was a fraudulent 2022 election in the nation.

This is a blatant attack on anti-globalist leaders trying to save their nations from falling victim to policies being handed down by groups such as the World Economic Forum and World Health Organization.

Axios reports on the court’s ruling below:

Brazil’s highest elections court voted Friday to ban former President Jair Bolsonaro from running for office for eight years for undermining the country’s democracy by making false claims about its voting system.

Why it matters: The ruling, if upheld after an expected appeal to the Supreme Court, will prevent Bolsonaro from running in the next presidential election, scheduled for 2026.

The populist former president will also be banned from seeking any lower office.

Zoom in: The ruling is based on Bolsonaro’s baseless claims in the lead-up to last October’s election — which he narrowly lost in a run-off — that Brazil’s electronic voting system could be rigged against him.

After the election, Bolsonaro’s supporters stormed the presidential palace and other government buildings. An investigation into allegedincitement of the rioters by Bolsonaro is ongoing.

Bolsonaro has denied any responsibility for the riot and accused the courts of political persecution.

“For the love of God, what kind of democracy is this? Why can’t I criticize the voting system?” he said in a recent radio interview, per WSJ.

What to watch: Pro-Bolsonaro members of Congress are preparing a bill to lift the ban, though critics — including Brazil’s justice minister — argue that would be unconstitutional.

Bolsonaro has also been caught up in other investigations, including a probe into the spread of disinformation online and another into the alleged procurement of fake vaccine cards.

Even before the ruling, it was unclear whether Bolsonaro would try to return to front-line politics, or simply continue to serve as the unofficial leader of the nationalist right.
