Jair Bolsonaro, the president in Brazil, is pressured with his news regarding election frauds which are merely allegations that are yet unproven. A military parade outside the palace of the president has presided over and this gained a lot of criticism from Brazilians. On Tuesday, the leader unaffectedly smiled beside his military top brass on the steps of the palace. Armored vehicles and tanks also had a long convoy with this man of power.

Critics talked about it and said that this may have been inspired by the military dictatorship from 1964 to 1985. Bolsonaro was an army captain and the parade opened some memories from the past. Senator Omar Aziz said that the scene was pathetic.

The president is also now criticized for handling the pandemic crisis poorly. Senator Omar Aziz is the Senate committee handling the investigation on the said irresponsible government that led to more than half a million deaths in Brazil. These statistics were contributed by the John Hopkins University Data.

Aziz believes that the democratic country has the means to protect itself from this worsened crisis. Bolsonary is facing allegations and accusations regarding irregularities on COVID vaccines he procured, as well as corruption.

The president claims that the electoral system in Brazil is full of fraud. This is believed to be an allegation formed out of Bolsonaro’s pressure from the criticisms he is facing. Of course, the top jurists in Brazil and experts denied these accusations.

Bolsonaro idolizes Donald Trump so much as per the critics. If former left-wing Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva runs in 2022, Bolsonaro would lose according to the polls. The Supreme Electoral Court and Brazilian Supreme Court are even working hand in hand on the investigation for Bolzonaro. This investigation pertains to Bolzonaro’s campaign against the electronic voting system which the country has lived for since 1996. The Brazilian Supreme Court and Supreme Electoral Court are seeing the potential cases they can file against the president. Congress debated regarding this on the day Bolsonaro presided over the military parade.

The president was vocal that he wanted the paper ballots to be printable and auditable. Despite the criticisms, his supporters were always there. Thousands of his supporters even rallied to show their utmost support for the president’s wishes.

The event was made for the armies because the president wants to be involved in the military exercises in the countryside. The filed tanks that paraded outside the palace were understood by the congress to be a form of intimidation that Bolsonaro wanted to instill. This was also something that was executed during the dictatorship era.

The president still insisted that the parade with the military got nothing to do with the congress bill. However, political scientists from top universities believed that this show was made to remind congress that the armed forces are with him. That is why Bolsonaro presided over the tank parade because he wants to intimidate the supreme court and the congress who are especially against him, of his power and authority.
