RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) – Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday he did not expect energy problems next year due to recent rains’ filling up hydroelectric dams, while saying that his main challenge in 2022 will be tackling inflation and creating jobs.

Bolsonaro, who is widely expected to seek re-election in next year’s presidential vote, also reminded viewers of a weekly social media address that they would be choosing a president who gets to pick two Supreme Court justices in 2023, making an explicit appeal to conservative voters.
