Minister Ricardo Lewandowski took the opportunity to say that ‘it is better to use electronic voting machines because they do not fail’
At the session of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) this Wednesday, 4, the minister Kássio Nunes Marques was elected substitute minister of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE). The vote, however, was marked by a moment of relaxation, motivated by an error by the president of the Supreme, Luiz Fux, in counting the votes. Ten magistrates voted electronically, but on the ballot printed and read by Fux, there were 11 votes: ten for Nunes Marques, one for Toffoli days and one to “another”. President of the TSE, Luis Roberto Barroso mocked the situation: “There’s no vote left. I mean what was wrong was the [voto] printed”. “Yeah, it was the printout,” Fux replied. the minister Ricardo Lewandowski, through the remote system, added: “It is better to resort to electronic voting machines because they do not fail”. The most recent crisis between the Judiciary and the government of President Jair Bolsonaro occurs in the wake of the processing of the PEC of the printed vote on Chamber of Deputies – the matter is facing resistance and should be rejected on Thursday, 5. The country’s representative says that there were frauds in the elections but did not present a single proof. In recent statements, Bolsonaro has also said that Barroso has a personal stake in the former president’s election. Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
