Brazil Panel Votes to Im­peach Dilma

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Rio De Janeiro: A con­gres­sional com­mit­tee voted on Mon­day to rec­om­mend that the im­peach­ment process against Pres­i­dent Dilma Rouss­eff move for­ward, bring­ing the pos­si­ble ouster of the em­bat­tled leader a step closer. The spe­cial con­gres­sional com­mis­sion voted 38-27 to rec­om­mend the con­tin­u­a­tion of the im­peach­ment process. The mat­ter will go to the full lower house for a cru­cial vote ex­pected at the week end on whether to send the mat­ter to the Se­nate for a pos­si­ble trial. If that hap­pened, Rouss­eff would be sus­pended from of­fice for up to 180 days dur­ing a trial. AP
