• Rousseff impeachment should go ahead: commission rep


    BRASÍLIA: The impeachment of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff should go ahead, the representative for a congressional commission said Wednesday, bringing the country’s political crisis a step closer to a showdown. Jovair Arantes, rapporteur for a special impeachment commission in the lower house of Congress, said he had concluded the “legal admissibility” of the case against the leftist president. “The magnitude and scope of the violations made by the president of the republic constitute a serious abuse,” he said. The decision was given in a lengthy report that Arantes read aloud, live on national television, to the 65-member impeachment commission, sometimes interrupted by deputies shouting and arguing.
