By Thomas KorontaiIn 2018, the full electoral year, Avast - a global cyber security giant, carried out a robust survey in Brazil, the result of which the TSE would never disclose: 91,84% of Brazilians do not have confidence in the Brazilian electronic ballot box. (To see on here and on here )
According to the survey, the main concern is that the system could be violated and the elections rigged.
Among the total survey participants, 94.3% believe that leaks of data from candidates / or political parties can impact public opinion and even the electoral result. The account grows to 96,15% when it comes to concern that politicians are targets of cybercriminals.
Other research numbers:
- 93,54% said they will go to the polls in 2018
- 79,42% have great interest in the country's political issues
- 55,37% already know which candidates will vote
- 44,63% should decide only closer to the election
- 10,54% did not comment on
- 10,03% are not interested in the subject
Another disconcerting fact is the excessive BAN (White, Abstention, Null), reported by the polls, when not only this, but other polls, also revealed the great interest of Brazilians in voting.
The fact is that in the face of distrust, TSE / STF ministers as Toffoli, Marco Aurélio Mello, Gilmar Mendes, Rosa Weber and others, despise the will of the population, while they are rescued in the mainstream media with robust space, to defend the “smoothness” of the electoral process. Maybe because TSE is a big advertiser with our taxes?
"The will of the people is the foundation of the authority of public authorities: and it must be expressed through honest elections to be held periodically by universal and equal suffrage and by secret ballot, which guarantees the free expression of the will of the voters"
Art. 21 Decl. Human Rights, Art. 23, 25, International Covenant on Civil / Political Rights and San José Pact.
If the majority does not believe that our elections are honest, what is the justification for so much resistance from the electoral administrator, in guaranteeing the security so desired by the population?
Would you live in a bubble disconnected from reality, at the mercy of a small technocratic group from your IT department?
Or do they definitely despise the free expression of voters' will? With what objective to ignore the mistrust of Brazilians?
Why the resistance to modernizing the elections with new resources, which would make the voting system more secure and transparent?
Would they feel like “owners of the country” and that is why they want to maintain control over the political game?
This is what countless people question around the country, from ordinary citizens to parliamentarians, specialists in electoral law and specialists in electronic voting.
The question is very clear: if 92% of Brazilians do not trust the electronic ballot boxes, they also do not trust the electoral body that arbitrarily obliges them to vote for them, making them hostages to democratic insecurity.
This invasion, carried out for months - before, during and after the elections - was communicated to the TecMundo anonymously by the hackers themselves and confirmed with documentary evidence. 2020, again the TSE was hacked and the hacker went public to report that he made the invasion with a low cell.
