MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. Impeachment for Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff will not hinder the holding of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) told TASS Thursday.
Brazil’s Federal Senate on Thursday, following the lower house of parliament, spoke by a majority of votes (55 against 22) for continuation of the procedure of impeachment regarding President Dilma Rousseff.
In line with the law, the president should leave her post for 180 days for the period of legal wrangling in connection with accusations against her of abuse of office in the financial policy and the corruption scandal around the state oil company Petrobras, in which Rousseff led the board of directors in 2003-2010.
While she is suspended, the country’s vice president, Michel Temer, will lead the country. If following judicial inquiries the Brazilian president is permanently removed from office, Temer will remain at the helm until the next elections in 2018.
"We have seen the great progress being made in Rio de Janeiro and we remain confident about the success of the Olympic Games in August," the IOC quoted its President Thomas Bach as saying.
Bach also said the Games will show determination of the Brazilian people in the period of crisis for the country.
"The Brazilian people will deliver a memorable Olympic Games full of passion for sport for which they are world renowned. It will be a moment for Brazil to show to the world its determination to overcome the present crisis. These will be Brazil's Games," he said.
The Olympic Games will be held in Rio on August 5-21.
