HAVANA TIMES – In Brazil, defeated far-right President Bolsonaro made his first public statements Tuesday, two days after he lost the presidential election to leftist former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
President Jair Bolsonaro: “The right rose for real in our country. Our robust strength in Congress shows our values’ strength – God, homeland, family and freedom.”
Bolsonaro neither conceded nor contested the election results, but after he spoke, his chief of staff said the transition to a new administration would start. Bolsonaro also urged his supporters to stop disruptive protests, though many continued to block streets and major highways on Tuesday night.
