RIO DE JANEIRO, May 12. /TASS/. The Brazilian Senate on Thursday voted to suspend President Dilma Rousseff from office to face impeachment proceedings.
A total of 55 of the 81 members of Brazil's upper house voted in favor of the impeachment trial, which could last 180 days, while 22 voted against.
Brazil’s Vice President Michel Temer will take over as interim head of state.
The impeachment process was launched in December by the then-speaker of the lower house of Congress, Eduardo Cunha, who claimed that Rousseff was guilty of breaking budgetary laws by borrowing from state banks to cover a shortfall in the deficit and pay for social programs in the run-up to her re-election in 2014.
