The session of the Electoral Tribunal, scheduled for local evening hours in Brasilia, begins with the reading of the vote by the rapporteur, Minister Benedito Gonçalves.

Jair Bolsonaro is the subject of a lawsuit in which the Democratic Labor Party accuses him of abuse of political power and misuse of the media after a meeting with ambassadors at the Alvorada Palace in July last year, prior to the general elections.

According to the PDT, the then president attacked the electronic voting machines used in the elections that would take place in October.

The action is also responded to by the candidate for vice president on the ballot and former minister of Bolsonaro's Civil House, Walter Braga Netto.

From the high court they explain that before dealing with the merits, Benedito Gonçalves must deal with preliminary issues, such as the permanence of the so-called "coup project" in the process.

In last Thursday's session, the PDT lawyer, Walber Agra, made harsh accusations against the former president during his speech and mentioned coup attempts in the country and established connections between the meeting with ambassadors, the spread of false news and the attack on democratic institutions.

Agra said that the process under trial is the action of "systematic attacks on the electoral system" and "defense of institutions and democracy."
