On Friday, May 26th, the president of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), Justice Gilmar Mendes, met with the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Aloysio Nunes.

During the meeting held at the Court, the president of the TSE discussed with the Minister of Foreign Affairs subjects such as the possibility of international observers from the Organization of American States (OAS) to observe the General Elections of 2018; the expansion of the título NET, which allows the use of online electoral services by voters living abroad; and the possible signing of an agreement between TSE and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA).

The OAS electoral observation mission is an opportunity to strengthen cooperation on electoral affairs with the organization, as well as strengthen Brazil's role as a driving force of democracy in the region. This was the first meeting between them since Minister Aloysio Nunes took office in March of this year.
