The minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) Gilmar Mendes took office today (13) as deputy minister of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), the body responsible for organizing the elections.
Last month, Mendes was symbolically elected by the Supreme Court to hold the post. It is the minister’s third visit to the electoral court, which he presided over in 2006 and 2016.
In addition to Gilmar, ministers Dias Toffoli and André Mendonça also make up the vacancies of substitute ministers from the STF.
The effective vacancies belong to Alexandre de Moraes, current president, Cármen Lúcia and Nunes Marques.
The minister of the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) Antonio Carlos Ferreira also took office as substitute among the members of his court.
The TSE is composed of seven ministers, three from the STF, two from the STJ and two lawyers with notorious legal knowledge.
