Less than four months before the presidential elections are held in Brazil, Lula da Silva criticized the current president Jair Bolsonaro, since he considered that he seeks to create confusion prior to said electoral day. In fact, da Silva compared Bolsonaro to the former president of the United States, donald trump.
Through his social networks, Lula da Silva pointed out that Bolsonaro seeks to raise suspicions where there are none to justify “any nonsense.” This, in allusion to the assault on the Capitol that occurred in 2021, when Trump argued that he was the victim of electoral fraud in the elections that he lost to Joe Biden.
As reported in AmericanPost.News, the tension in Brazil prior to the presidential elections increases every day, in fact, the first violent acts have already been reported as supporters of Lula da Silva and Bolsonaro staged a shooting in recent days. Both lost their lives in this incident.

Furthermore, Lula da Silva said that Bolsonaro is not afraid of electronic ballot boxes, rather, he is afraid of the political will of the Brazilian people. This, after the current president of Brazil questioned the electoral system of that country, which has used paper voting for several decades.
“Bolsonaro wants to create confusion like Trump did in the United States. He wants to create suspicion where there is none. He is trying to deceive the people to justify any nonsense,” Lula da Silva wrote on his social networks.
It should be noted that Lula da Silva has already served as president of Brazil twice, in a period from 2003 to 2010, since he won the elections in 2006. This will be the third time that he seeks to be the maximum president of his country.
