The Superior Electoral Court (TSE) received 12 candidacy registration requests for the presidential race in the October elections. The deadline for electronic registration ended at 8 am. The delivery of records by physical means at the TSE ends at 19:00.
After the candidates are approved in the party conventions, the application for registration of candidacy in the Electoral Justice is a formality to verify if the candidates have any legal restrictions and if they can run for the election.
Upon receipt of the applications, the application requests will be published by the court. Then, a period of five days will be opened so that candidates and opposing parties and the Electoral Public Ministry (MPE) can challenge the requests.
The next step will be the judgment of the record by the minister who was drawn to report the process, which should be judged by September 12.
