The last debate of the second round of the 2022 Elections, between Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (EN) and Jair Bolsonaro (PL), took place this Friday (29) on Rede Globo.
See the highlights:
In the first block, Bolsonaro promised to increase the minimum wage to R$1,400. He called Lula’s electoral propaganda a liar, which allegedly said that Bolsonaro would put an end to labor benefits, such as overtime, 13th salary and vacation. Lula countered, stating that a survey pointed out 6,498 lies told by Bolsonaro during his term and that he increased the minimum wage by 74%, while Bolsonaro readjusted the minimum only for inflation.
The second block was marked by opinions on abortion. Former President Lula recalled a speech by Bolsonaro in which he said he had considered the abortion of one of his children – the statement was given at the time when the Chief Executive was a federal deputy, in 2000. “Does the candidate remember that speech? I’ll see a snippet here. It’s no use having a crowd of undernourished Brazilians unable to serve their country. Your deputy concluded that he offered to distribute abortion pills to Brazilian society in 1992, when he was a deputy. Did he say that or not?“, asked Lulu.
Bolsonaro called Lula an abortionist and recalled the case of Miriam Cordeiromother of one of PT’s daughters Lurian Cordeiro Lula da Silva. Miriam, in 1989, gave an interview claiming that Lula had offered money for her to have an abortion.
Lula then replied: “Look, I just wanted to tell you the following: I think the time has come for us to discuss something more seriously. I am here to discuss the following: what are we going to do in this country. And I will start, from the next block, to talk about the government program”.
As expected, the case Roberto Jefferson came to the fore in the third block of the debate. Jefferson is in jail after shooting at federal police last Sunday.
Bolsonaro, when responding to Roberto Jefferson, says that he had the ally arrested. It wasn’t the president: it was the decision of Minister Alexandre de Moraes, of the STF. #DebatenaGlobo
President spent the week trying to disassociate himself from Jefferson – that also caught on to the committee.
