Despite the fact that opened in Rio de Janeiro Olympic games-2016 in full swing, the main Brazilian news do not come with sports arenas. The host country of the Summer games is going through a political crisis, which has entered a new phase. The Senate of Brazil on the night of August 10 gave the nod to the beginning of impeachment process against the already dismissed the head of state.
The initiative to convene a formal trial Dilma Rousseff after nearly 17 hours of deliberations supported 59 people, 21 Senator voted against it. The outcome of the vote to no one’s surprise. And it seems that the prospects for the Rousseff is not very bright.
Court session to end in late summer – early autumn (that is, by the time when the Olympics is finished). And then that will be the decisive vote. In order to take a decision on the impeachment required a two-thirds majority of senators.
If Dilma Rousseff is finally removed from presidential post, the acting head of state Michel Temer without early elections will remain in office until the end of the presidential term in 2018. Meanwhile, his popularity among compatriots leaves much to be desired (though the rating Rousseff is also extremely low). Suffice it to recall that when the acting President spoke at the opening of the Olympics in Rio, he was booed by the audience.
Recall that back in may, Dilma Rousseff was removed from the presidential office for a period of 180 days. it’s officially accused of distorting data on the state of the Federal budget to improve the chances of winning the presidential election in 2014, and in illegal campaign financing. At the same time against her personally was not raised allegations of corruption. She does it all in his address denies the accusation and impeachment calls conspiracy coup. According to her, the removal of the President by means of impeachment, given that she hasn’t done anything illegal, is a violation of the Constitution.
From the file “MK”: Dilma Rousseff was first elected President of the Federative Republic of Brazil in 2010, and in 2011 assumed the position of head of state, became the first in the history of the country woman President). She has Slavic roots: her father Peter Rusev was at one time an activist of the Bulgarian Communist party, he had to emigrate to Brazil in the period between the two world wars. Dilma herself also adheres to left-wing political views: in 1967 she joined the youth organization of the Socialist party of Brazil. During the dictatorship she was part of the underground armed organizations. In 1970 I was arrested, in prison, a young woman was subjected to beatings and torture with electric shocks. Later, she participated in the creation of the Democratic labour party, and in the late 1990s, I moved to a more radical workers ‘ Party. In 2005, he headed the Administration of the President of Brazil.Related posts:
