The president of the Federal Supreme Court, Luiz Fux, defended the electoral system, called by him one of the “most efficient, reliable and modern in the whole world”, commanded by an Electoral Justice “transparent, understandable and open to all those who wish to contribute positively to the fairness of the competition”. The statement was made during the opening of the second semester at the Court, with the return of face-to-face work and judgments in the plenary. Fux said that in two months the population “will experience one of the most sensitive moments”, of the elections, and therefore he made an appeal for respect on the part of citizens and candidates.

The National Association of Transvestites and Transsexuals (Antra) created a campaign to pressure the STF to proceed with the judgment that deals with the use of bathrooms by transsexuals according to the gender they identify with.. Called “Libera meu pexi, STF”, the campaign makes frequent comments on the Court’s profiles on social networks and massive e-mails are sent to the office of Justice Luiz Fux, who temporarily suspended the trial when he asked for a view in November 2015. The trial in question has general repercussions, that is, its result will guide all decisions on the matter in the lower levels of Justice. The case that gave rise to the lawsuit was filed by a transgender woman who filed a claim for compensation for moral damages against a shopping center in Santa Catarina, alleging that she was prevented by company employees from using the women’s bathroom in the establishment “in a rude and vexatious approach”, according to the prosecution. The first degree sentence sentenced the mall to pay R$15,000 for moral damages. The company appealed and in the second instance the decision was reversed in the Court of Justice of the State of Santa Catarina. Now the matter is still at the Supreme Court.
