Praça dos Ministérios closed to prevent invasion of Bolsonarist truck drivers

The Military Police closed the Esplanada dos Ministérios in Brasília, a space that concentrates the headquarters of the three powers of Brazil, in order to prevent the invasion of truck drivers who support Jair Bolsonaro, who are protesting the election result.

In a note from the Military Police released by CNN Brasil, it is read that “the Esplanade was preemptively isolated to prevent trucks from invading the region. The idea is to protect public bodies and maintain order.”

According to the local press, at least 19 states are suffering from demonstrations on the roads to contest Lula da Silva’s victory, a victory that the protesters consider fraudulent and that only promise to stop the demonstrations after Bolsonaro’s speech.

The president of the Workers’ Party, Gleisi Hoffmann, blamed the Brazilian head of state and said that Bolsonaro is directing “the chaos in the country”.

“By ordering transport entrepreneurs and agribusiness people to block highways, with the political objective of questioning the election and for him to be able to act by Law and Order. Concern for the country’s people and economy is zero. It’s all about power. Shameful,” he wrote on Twitter.

The head of state and defeated candidate, Jair Bolsonaro, has not yet called Lula da Silva to congratulate him, nor has he made any public statements since the results of Sunday’s elections were announced.

Bolsonaro met today at Palácio do Planalto with several ministers from his government, but so far has not released any information about when he will speak about the presidential elections.

With 100% of the votes counted, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva won Sunday’s presidential elections by a narrow margin, receiving 50.9% of the vote, against 49.1% for Jair Bolsonaro, who was seeking a new four-year term.

Lula da Silva will again assume the presidency of Brazil on January 1, 2023 for a third term, after having ruled the country between 2003 and 2010.
