Bolsonaro’s chief of staff: Agrees to move

Bolsonaro’s chief of staff: Agrees to move

Bolsonaro was not opposed to the result at the same time, according to reports BBC.

The statement is the first by a Brazilian president since Lula da Silva was declared the winner of Sunday’s presidential election.

But after a very brief appearance, Bolsonaro’s chief of staff, Ciro Nogueira, announced that the president had “approved the transition.”

A few hours after the polls closed on Sunday, it was clear that Jair Bolsonaro had lost the election. Left-wing leader Luiz Inacio “Lula” da Silva received 50.9 percent of the vote against Bolsonaro’s 49.1.

However, the election results led to protests. According to the traffic police, Bolsonaro supporters protested on Tuesday until access was completely or partially stopped at more than 260 places along the country’s roads.

In several places, people are demonstrating in yellow and green – the colors of the country’s flag – and many are also waving the Brazilian flag.

– We will not accept the situation as it is, says 45-year-old Antoniel Almeida at a demonstration in Barra Mansa.

Bolsonaro has not distanced himself from the protests, but says they should be peaceful.

Peaceful protests are always welcome. He said in his first post-election statement that our methods cannot be like those of the left, which always harm the population, such as invading property…and denying the right of coming and going.

As of Monday evening, supporters in at least 11 states had blocked highways with their trucks, burned tires and parked their cars in the middle of the road to stop traffic.

For months, Bolsonaro has claimed that the electoral system is corrupt and that there is a conspiracy against it. His silence for so long after the election results were clear that some feared he was trying a Brazilian version of the storming of the US Capitol, which was launched after then-President Donald Trump refused to accept his loss.

But some of Bolsonaro’s close allies have already publicly acknowledged the loss – among them the Speaker of the House, Arthur Lera, who aligns with the Speaker. Congratulations from the outside world poured in to Lula da Silva from a number of countries such as the United States, China, Russia, India, France, South Africa and Great Britain.

Also Tuesday’s invitation came from Egypt to Lula da Silva where he was welcomed at the UN Climate Summit COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh. The meeting begins on November 6.
