Brasilia, October 19 (RHC)-- Candidate for the Presidency of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, denounced this Tuesday the current president, Jair Bolsonaro, for using digital platforms to spread lies while emphasizing that "the truth will always win,"

The leader of the Workers' Party (PT) affirmed during a virtual meeting with the Brazil of Hope coalition that "WhatsApp is the great tool they use to spread lies and we need to know it."  Lula added that the far-right candidate "says that I am going to close churches, but he knows that I created the Religious Freedom law, that I was president for eight years and never closed even one church."

At the same time, he stressed that "we are facing an abnormal citizen.  That makes lies his way of doing politics. I saw a video of him where he says that it is necessary to lie to win elections.  He neither campaigns nor governs honestly."

Likewise, the former president called on the people to take a little more time "to defeat his lying machine.  They spend a lot of money telling lies, but the truth will always win."   Lula stressed the need to disseminate his government's proposals in order to counteract right-wing propaganda, as well as so that "people understand that we know what to do when we win the elections."

The campaign for Bolsonaro's reelection disseminated this Tuesday its most recent false news about an alleged attack on its candidate for governor in Sao Paulo, Tarcisio de Freitas, after a shooting, which the police proved that there was no link whatsoever.
