The Superior Electoral Court (TSE) has demonstrated and promoted the Brazilian electronic system in several countries.
In Africa, missions have been sent to Angola, Mozambique, South Africa, Tunisia and Guinea-Bissau. In Europe, countries like Germany, France, England, Italy, Turkey and Ukraine have showed interest in the Brazilian voting machines. Likewise, in the American continent, Colombia, Bolivia, Peru, Nicaragua, Haiti, Panama, El Salvador and the United States have already requested technical information.
Representatives of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE) were also in Asian countries as Japan, Indonesia, Cambodia and India.
In Oceania, the technicians of the Electoral Justice participated in peace missions to East Timor. In August 2001, electoral observers of the three Brazilian powers monitored the elections in the country, where 88 representatives of the National Constituent Assembly were chosen.
After 25 years of war, that was the first time that East Timor, a former Portuguese colony, had elections. In total, fifteen parties and five independent candidates ran for offices. Although the vote was not mandatory, 91% of the enrolled voters went to the polls.
East Timor had the help of the Court's officials in the elaboration of the Timorese Electoral Code and in the execution of the elections of 2002 and 2007, when the Parliament's representatives and the President of the country were elected.
In contributing to the improvement of foreign electoral systems, the Electoral Justice of Brazil helps other countries to enable the exercise of citizenship, which is a relevant part of the fundamental rights.
