The outcome of the vote became something of a surprise, most observers predicted that it will end for Dilma Rousseff impeachment. Especially after the night from 9 to 10 August, the Senate has included a green light to starting this procedure. And was the result of frequent discussions held in the presence of the head of state.

So, Dilma Rousseff finally deposed from the post of President of Brazil. Thus, appointed as acting head of state Vice-President Michel Temer will remain in office until the end of the presidential term in 2018.

Dilma Rousseff was removed from the presidential office for a period of 180 days in may.

Against her personally was not raised allegations of corruption. She is formally accused of distorting data on the state of the Federal budget to improve the chances of winning the presidential election in 2014. Address Rousseff accusations of illegal campaign funding. But allegations of corruption were addressed to a number of colleagues about this in an Interview at the Labour party, in connection with the fraud around the state-controlled oil company Petrobras. Of course, opponents claimed that Rousseff could hardly have failed to know about these dark deeds. At the same time it got for the collapse of the economy of the country, really came lately in decline.

Rousseff tried to defend themselves, calling the impeachment a “conspiracy” of the coup and accusations against him are false. She at the last session of the Senate came to join the fight was unequal. Dilma Rousseff, addressing the senators, mentioned the military coup of 1964, when she was arrested and tortured. Although she did not compare those events with the impeachment, the analogy suggests itself.

Daughter of a Bulgarian immigrant, a Communist, a supporter of left-wing, passed through the prison in 2011 after winning the election of 2010 became the first Brazilian woman President. She, as recent events have shown, was the second in Brazilian history a President who lost power as a result of impeachment. The first was the President Fernando color, who served as President in 1990-1992. Resigned after the Parliament adopted the decision on his impeachment. He was accused of corruption. Kolor lost in 1992 not only his post, but also the rights for eight years to engage in politics. In 1994 the Supreme court dismissed with Color corruption charges, citing a technical error in the decision, but upheld the ban on political activities.

Anyway, the final removal of Dilma Rousseff from power by itself will not improve the socio-economic situation in Brazil, in crisis. Moreover, her “mate” Michel Temer is also not popular among Brazilians.
