The Head of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) Minister Edson Fachin signed on Tuesday (Jul. 5), in the United States, an agreement to authorize the participation of the Organization of American States (OAS) as an observer of the Brazilian elections in October.

This is the second agreement signed by the court with international entities. Last week, TSE and Mercosur Parliament (Parlasul) signed a partnership to send a mission with representatives of the entity to observe the compliance with electoral rules, the stages of the electoral process, and impartiality in the organization of the election.

According to TSE, the mission will be independent to collaborate with the improvement of the Brazilian electoral system.

International representatives have observed other elections in the country, for instance, OAS missions in 2018 and 2020.

The Brazilian Superior Electoral Court shall authorize other missions to observe the elections, such as the Electoral Network of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP), the World Network for Electoral Justice, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (Ifes), and the Inter-American Union of Electoral Bodies (Uniore).
