It is false that Jair Bolsonaro announced “scandalous fraud” after the second round in Brazil

“Urgent! The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, claims to have evidence of ‘scandalous fraud’ and has decreed the mobilization of the Armed Forces in the country”, warn several posts on Facebook and Twitter. This supposed data has been circulating since October 31, 2022, one day after the second round of elections in the South American country, in which the leftist leader and former president triumphed. Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and the representative of the extreme right, who was seeking re-election, was defeated. Said content, which attaches an image of Bolsonaro, concentrates more than 14,000 ‘likes’ on social networks. However, this is false information.
