BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) -- Electoral authorities in Brazil say the president's son cannot run for office anywhere in the country.
Brazil's constitution forbids an elected official's immediate family member from running in the same jurisdiction.
And since President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's jurisdiction includes all of Brazil, the court says his son can't even run for a city council seat in Sao Paulo state.
Silva's Workers Party says it will appeal the decision, made public Friday.
Two of the seven electoral judges dissented, saying the ruling against the president's son Marcos Claudio da Silva was too broad.
