This rule had been included in a change of electoral laws in 2009, but this was suspended by the STF in 2010, after a motion brought by the Brazilian Association of Radio and Television Stations (Abert).

This week, a majority of STF justices ruled that the ban went against the Constitution as it limited freedom of expression.

The electoral law prohibited the use of any "trickery, editing or any other audio or video resource which, in any way, degrades or ridicules a candidate, party, or coalition, or the production or transmission of programs with this effect."

Another questionable element of the electoral law was a section preventing the broadcasting of any "opinion favorable or contrary to a candidate, party (or) coalition."

Also on Thursday, the president of the Superior Electoral Court (TSE), Luiz Fux, highlighted efforts being made to fight fake news, and pointed out the difference between such content and political satire or criticism.

"I differentiate between freedom of expression and knowingly inverted electoral propaganda which causes irreparable damage... if the vote is to be free, we cannot channel such news... under the aegis of freedom of expression," he said.

Brazilian general elections will be held in October to vote for a new president and vice-president, as well as federal, state and local legislators.
