The president of the Workers Party (PT) of Brazil, Gleisi Hoffmann, denounced on Wednesday that the right-wing candidate for the presidency of Brazil for the Liberal Social Party (PSL), Jair Bolsonaro, before the Senate for his responsibility in acts of violence that have arisen in the country in the electoral context.
Hoffmann indicated that Bolsonaro is responsible for the acts of violence committed by his followers because they are backed by hate speech made by him.

"There are more than 104 records of violence on the electoral map, including deaths and assaults, carried out during the electoral debates and, among them, almost 100 percent of the aggressors were followers of Jair Bolsonaro," said the PT president.
"He (Bolsonaro) said that he has no responsibility because he does not control people, in fact, you are a leader, you are a symbol of violence, cruelty, barbarism," Hoffmann said at the same time she recalled the murder of several people in the country in which the murderers shouted the name of the candidate at the time of committing the act.
Hoffmann pointed out that Bolsonaro does not speak with candidate Fernando Haddad because he has nothing to say to the population, since he does not know the real problems of the Brazilian people.
Finally, she criticized that the right-wing candidate has no plans for the nation and accused him of sponsoring the fake news that spread on social networks about candidate Fernando Haddad and his running mate Manuela D'Ávila.
