Democratic politician Bernie Sanders In have the Senate America Officially show support for Brazilian democracy and free and fair presidential elections, according to his interview with the American website Politico. In the conversation, the politician said that in August, the US Senate will present a draft resolution to express its opinion on the matter.
The Vermont senator said the idea is to support the candidate who wins. Fair and independent regardless of the outcome of the upcoming presidential election. The resolution also calls for severing ties with the United States BrazilIf the country is led by an illegitimate regime.
If Jair Bolsonaro, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, or anyone else legitimately wins the presidency, there will be no need for change in US-Brazilian relations — after all, that will be the will of the people.
“It is unacceptable for the United States to recognize and work with a government that actually lost an election. It would be a disaster for the people of Brazil, and it would send a terrible message to the whole world about the strength of democracy,” the American said.
However, the resolution proposed by Sanders is non-binding, that is, it does not imply mandatory procedural measures. In practice, they are created to express the collective opinion of the legislature.
“This is just the beginning,” Sanders said. “It is important for the Brazilian people to know that we are on their side, on the side of democracy, and we can go further.”
The American also said he had sent part of the speech to his counterparts in Washington. Sanders said he already has support from Democrats for the measure, but no Republicans have spoken so far.
