  1. A group of 38 parliamentarians from four French political parties (LFI, PCF, LREM, PS) sent a letter to French President Emmanuel Macron, requesting that he immediately intervene, using all peaceful measures possible, so that ex-President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva can run for President in the Brazilian elections, in accordance with the UN Human Rights Committee Ruling. The parliamentarians say the action is about guaranteeing the legality of the elections based on international law and enabling the Brazilian people to exercise their sovereignty.
