PSDB says it will do another round of testing on new app before resuming preview voting | Policy

The president of the PSDB, Bruno Araújo, informed this Thursday (25) that the party will carry out a new round of tests on a new application before setting the date for resuming the initials of the acronym — an internal election that will define the party’s pre-candidate to the Presidency of the Republic in the 2022 elections.

The PSDB previews began this Sunday (21), however, voting was suspended after the application used by the affiliates presented instability. Toucans estimate that only 8% of the nearly 44,000 voters were able to confirm the vote (see below).

The party’s caucuses are in dispute (in alphabetical order): the former mayor of Manaus (AM), Arthur Virgil, the governor of Rio Grande do Sul, Eduardo Leite and the governor of São Paulo, João Doria.

The so-called “stress test”, in which the system is subjected to a series of attacks in search of vulnerabilities, will start at the end of the night of this Thursday (25th) and will advance into the early hours of this Friday (26).

This new stage will occur because the selected company, Bee Voter, has committed to carry out adjustments in the system until 21:00 this Friday (26), at the request of the campaigns of the pre-candidates.

If the results are satisfactory after the tests, the campaigns will meet this Friday morning (26) to define the procedures, date and time for voting to resume.

The expectation, according to Bruno Araújo, remains the same: complete the preview process on Sunday (28).

“If, during the night, around 5 am, 6 am, [desta sexta], there is a consensus that progress can be made, tomorrow [sexta], at 9 am, the party meets to make a decision on the procedures to resume and when to resume the voting process,” said Araújo.

“Under these circumstances, if there is confirmation by the company and there is no external agent to prevent it, the elections will be held until Sunday,” said the president of the PSDB.

At the same time, another company, Eleja Online, is also being tested for the hypothesis that the results of the Bee Voter tests do not satisfy the demands of the PSDB.

PSDB suspends the caucuses that will decide the party’s candidate for president of the republic

Last Sunday (21), the party’s caucuses had to be suspended due to a flaw in the voting application, which prevented most members from voting.

The platform initially contracted, developed by the Support Foundation for the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Faurgs), had flaws and instability, which led to the suspension of voting. According to the PSDB, the votes already registered are preserved.

As a result, a second company, RelataSoft, was called in, but it did not withstand the security tests carried out by the candidates’ campaigns. According to the caption, the results “were not entirely satisfactory”. This led to the need to search for a third company, Bee Voter.

Bruno Araújo stated that the level of demand imposed by the PSDB is high and few companies are able to meet the demand.

At the same time, the PSDB’s legal vice president, Deputy Carlos Sampaio (PSDB-SP), informed that, within 10 days, the acronym will carry out investigation procedures in order to gather evidence of a possible hacker attack on the application “Preview PSDB”, developed by Faurgs.

For this, the party will contact Faurgs and hire a specialized company to carry out an audit. At the end of the 10-day period, the investigations will be forwarded to the Federal Police and other legal measures will be taken if evidence of fraud is found.

Former presidents of the acronym demanded investigations into possible attacks on the system last Sunday.
