(Worthy News) – Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is contesting his defeat in the October and calling on the electoral authority to annul votes cast on most of the nation’s electronic voting machines, citing a software bug that independent experts have said didn’t affect the reliability of results.

Such an action would leave Bolsonaro with 51% of the remaining valid votes – and a reelection victory, Marcelo de Bessa, the lawyer filed the 33-page request on behalf of the president and his Liberal Party, told reporters on Tuesday.

The electoral authority has already declared victory for Bolsonaro‘s nemesis, leftist former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, and leading politicians, including many of the president’s allies, have accepted the results. Protesters in cities across the country have steadfastly refused to do the same, particularly with Bolsonaro declining to concede. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
