The Minister of the Supreme Federal Court (STF) Edson Fachin leaves the presidency of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) this third-feira (16). A CNNThe former Minister of the TSE and former Minister of Justice Torquato Jardim emphasized the main highlights of Fachin’s management before the court, and reiterated that “it did not sink in” for two important years.
In his last speech, on the 9th, Fachin highlighted his actions to combat disinformation as the main legacy of his management.
“Minister Fachin maintains the historical tradition of the court, he gives a collective voice at home. In the remarkable institutional defense that he made against all the allegations, he did not stand still, he did not get caught up, it was very important, ”said Jardim.
The defense of the electronic ballot boxes was a remarkable episode in the management of Fachin before the Superior Electoral Court; and for Torquato Jardim, fighting for the credibility of the electoral system via an electronic ballot box was a “used” political act.
“The defense of the electronic ballot boxes was also very important, either a political act rather than an administrative one, or a political act used to clearly mark the independence of the court,” stated the former TSE.
A CNNTorquato Jardim also highlighted the importance of Fachin in encouraging young people aged 16 and 17 to participate in the elections.
The six-month period in which Fachin was in front of the Court was marked by the campaign of awareness of the young vote, at the initiative of obtaining a record of accession.
“It is also important to the campaign to motivate those under 18 to vote. I am facultative voters, it is true, more than that it will be very important, at the end of the day, or the future of Brazil is for them”, she said.
The presidency of the TSE will be assumed by Minister Alexandre de Moraes, who will be in front of the Court for the next two years.
