Brazil electoral court rejects Bolsonaro's election challenge

BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazil’s electoral court chief Alexandre de Morais on Wednesday rejected a challenge by President Jair Bolsonaro’s party to the October decision, a court document showed.

Moraes, who is also a Supreme Court justice, also imposed 22 of 9 million reais in what the court called a malicious lawsuit, the documents show.

On Tuesday, Bolsonaro’s Liberal Party (PL) lodged a complaint challenging the election results, claiming that some electronic voting machines were defective and their ballots should be voided, election authorities initially Be skeptical of this argument.

Election experts and political analysts see the attempt as weak on merit, though it could still galvanize supporters who have been protesting Bolsonaro’s defeat.
