The Brazilian deputy Carla Zambellia very close ally of the president Jair Bolsonarochased this Saturday a man at gunpoint in the middle of a street in Sao Pauloon the eve of the second round of the presidential elections.

Zambelli, who was re-elected deputy in the legislative elections on October 2, stated on her social networks that she acted that way because alleged supporters of former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva “surrounded” and “attacked” her when leaving a restaurant.

In a video released on social networks, it can be seen how Zambelli crosses a street pointing a gun at a man, whom he pursues until he ends up inside another bar, where the deputy entered with both hands on the gun, despite the presence of other people in the room.

“I was assaulted recently, I was pushed to the ground. A black man, They used a black man, to go against me. They were several people. She was leaving a restaurant and several men approached her. There was a woman with a red shirt next to him,” Zambelli described, a symbol of the most radical Bolsonarism.

the deputy, third most voted in the state of São Pauloassured on her Instagram account that they called her “daughter of a bitch, prostitute” and that they spat on her “several times”.

“When he pushed me, I ran after him, told him I was going to call the police and he had to wait. He ran away, I took out the gun and ran after him for it to stop She was scared and ended up in a bar,” she narrated.

However, another video of the event that also circulates on the Internet seems to deny Zambelli’s version. In it you see a group of people, including the deputy, apparently in the middle of a discussion in the middle of the street.

On a certain moment, Zambelli seems to stumble and falls to the groundmoment from which she and another man, also with a firearm in hand, start a chase against the Afro-Brazilian accused by the parliamentarian.

This electoral campaign has been marked by a strong polarization between Lula and Bolsonaro, leader of the Brazilian extreme right, and for various episodes of violence of a political nature that in some cases have led to murder.

Lula and Bolsonaro will meet this Sunday in the second round of the presidential for which the progressive leader starts as the favorite with an advantage of between four and seven points over the retired Army captain, according to the latest polls.

In the first round of elections, held on October 2, Lula was the most voted candidate, with 48.4% of the votes, and Bolsonaro was in second place, with 43.2%.
