Brazil’s president, Dilma Rousseff, impeached

BRAZIL-ROUSSEFF

Brazil’s Senate has removed President Dilma Rousseff from office for manipulating the budget.

Sixty-one Senators against 20 voted in favour of the impeachment Wednesday.

Ms Rousseff was suspended in May after the Senate voted to go ahead with the impeachment process.
Br
Brazil’s lawmakers accused her of re-assigning funds between budget items.

Her critics said she was trying to plug deficit holes in popular social programmes to boost her chances of being re-elected for a second term in October 2014, reports the BBC.

Ms Rousseff said she did nothing wrong, and called the attempt to remove her a coup d’etat.

He impeachment puts an end to 13 years in power of her Workers’ Party.

Acting President Michel Temer will serve out her term, which ends on 1 January 2019.

    In Nigeria they call it budget padding. Here budget padding boosted the morale of President Buhari among Yoruba people of Western Nigeria.

    • Du Covenant

      You are terribly off-course as usual. Instead of calling for the culprits in Nigeria to face the same treatment you are yet again pointing somewhere else out of primodial sentiments. If as alleged ‘budget padding’ has been going on for years in our stinking Nigeria, what do you think it did to the buffoon during his time?. Be honest to yourself at least!

  • UOU

    Exactly what buhari did but the Senate is so embattled they cannot do the right thing…time is ticking seriously

  • Nkem

    So she was removed, basically for lying.
