Why does the needle of the electrometer deviate if a charged body is brought up to it without touching the electrometer?

Suppose, for example, we bring a negatively charged body to the electroscope. Some of the free electrons, repelling from the negative charge, go to the lower part of the rod and to the arrow. The arrow will start to push off the rod and deviate from the vertical.
