RIO DE JANEIRO, April 18. /TASS/. The lower house of Brazil’s parliament on Sunday supported impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff, with the idea’s advocates securing the support of two-thirds of deputies required for its passing.
The issue of impeachment will now be put to the consideration of the senate - the upper house of parliament. If over 50% of senators support it, Rousseff will leave her post for 180 days, during which parliamentarians will consider her case.
During that period, the country will be led by Vice President Michel Temer. If senators disagree with the arguments of presidential impeachment initiators, Rousseff will return to her post. Otherwise, Temer will remain on the post of the president until 2018 elections.
