International IDEA condemns assault on Brazil’s democracy

 |   | 

The storming of Brazil’s Presidential Palace, Congress and Supreme Court by supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro on Sunday is an unacceptable, illegitimate and dangerous assault on democracy and the outcome of free and fair elections.

International IDEA calls on the international community to unite behind Brazil's democratically-elected government and supports the efforts of its institutions to defend the democratic order, uphold the rule of law and restore peace.
