The far-right candidate is seeking re-election, but anticipates a possible failure by denouncing possible fraud in the electronic polls without showing evidence.

Bolsonaro revived the criticism and accusations against his followers and called on them to “remain in the area of ​​the electoral section” where they exercise the vote until the results are published, at the risk of violating the regulations of the Brazilian electoral law that prohibits crowds in the schools.
