Elected in exceptional circumstances, Bolsonaro caused exceptional damage in Brazil's economy and politics, society and military, and ecology. Before the election, Bolsonaro, who has never hidden his yearning for a new military junta, made multiple allegations of election fraud. Following the coup and Bolsonaro, Brazil's GDP is now where it was around 2007 or so. Brazil's military has a "parallel vote count," which some consider a risk to democracy. Furthermore, CySource, a controversial Israeli company hired by Brazil's military, will presumably "supervise" the election against "disinformation."
