The privatization of Eletrobras was officially completed in June this year, when the company became the first large state-owned company to be sold after almost four years of Jair Bolsonaro’s government.

The sale of Eletrobrás caused controversy among supporters who rejected this measure from the beginning and judicial appeals were filed to stop the process, but the Brazilian justice gave the green light to continue with the pending steps for its execution.

The process of privatizing Eletrobrás was fully involved in the electoral campaign to the point that former president and current presidential candidate Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva urged businessmen to stay away from the process.

Lula wrote at the time: “I hope that serious businessmen who want to invest in the Brazilian electricity sector do not join this strange mechanism that the current government’s traitors are preparing for Eletrobrás, a strategic company for Brazil, months before the election” .

“Without a public Eletrobrás, Brazil loses much of its sovereignty and energy security,” wrote the founder of the Workers’ Party on the social network Twitter.

Last Monday, in the midst of the electoral campaign ahead of the October 30 ballot, Lula once again rejected the application of a spending cap policy if he returns to the presidency, reaffirming that there will be no privatizations in his government.
