At the ceremony at the TSE, a speech by Moraes is scheduled, who should criticize the attacks made on the Brazilian electoral system. Bolsonaro is investigated in an investigation by the STF for this practice. As the president is not entitled to speak at the event, the fear is that he will appear weakened.

Moraes is the rapporteur of investigations in the STF that directly target the president. Lewandowski is also often criticized by Bolsonaro, for judicial decisions taken in the opposite direction to the interests of the government.
