Allies of the President of the Republic will not be able to use the surname “Bolsonaro” at the polls. The decision was made this Wednesday, 31, by the Regional Electoral Court of Rio de Janeiro by prohibiting two PL candidates from using the nickname of the candidate for re-election at the polls. the president himself Jair Bolsonaro (PL) recently presented a letter authorizing Max de Moura (PL), a former advisor and former security guard to the president, to use the name Max Bolsonaro in an attempt to win a seat in the Chamber of Deputies. But this appeal was not accepted by the TRE-RJ, stimulated by the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Rio de Janeiro (MPE-RJ). the deputy Hélio Lopes(PL), known as Hélio Negão, will also not be able to use the name Bolsonaro. The records of the two candidacies were approved by the TRE-RJ, but with the baptismal names of the respective candidates. According to the president of the TRE-RJ, judge Elton Leme, there are candidates who try to “ride a ride” on the name and surname of others: “I am also following the rapporteur regarding the impossibility, in both cases, of using the name Bolsonaro. What establishes the law is not the name as the candidate wants to be known, but the name as he is better known, which is very different. People want to piggyback on someone else’s name, but it’s not the name he’s known by. And that is very clear in the legal provision.”
