Brazilian Senate President Rodrigo Pacheco said on Friday that there is no risk of October election results being challenged, adding that the country's armed forces will respect the electoral outcome.

"With Brazil's institutions functioning, with society, with democracy already fully assimilated, I don't see the slightest environment for a refusal of the electoral result and much less of a coup," Pacheco told journalists in an interview.
