‘You want to gag the media’

President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) said this Friday, 28, in a debate promoted by TV Globo, that former president and candidate Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) wants to “gag” the Brazilian media.

“You tried to silence Jovem Pan,” Bolsonaro said. “Jovem Pan was silenced by a decision of Minister Alexandre de Moraes, but whoever filed a lawsuit was her party, Lula.”

The former president countered: “Is Jovem Pan your television channel? The PT’s lawyers filed a request for isonomy. It’s equality. It is the right of reply”.

Bolsonaro bet on the rejoinder. “No, they filed a lawsuit so that Jovem Pan could not say that you are not ‘decondensed’, that you are the head of a criminal organization. It’s the Superior Electoral Court responded to the request of your campaign.”

Respect for the Federal Constitution was also a topic in the debate. Bolsonaro said he had “killed in the chest” “absurd” decisions of the Federal Supreme Court (STF). “Not to leave the four lines”, he justified.

The PT retaliated. “He keeps threatening STF ministers”, he accused. “He lives threatening to close it down. He says he will not respect the Constitution. Curses the Supreme Court justices. A President of the Republic cannot do that.”

The presidential candidates also discussed property rights. “Lula, you defend land invasion,” Bolsonaro said. “You advocate invasion of cities. Is that respecting the Constitution? Private property is guaranteed in the Constitution. Why did the MST invade your government so much?”

Lula, in turn, said that lands considered “unproductive” can be expropriated, according to the Constitution.
