RIO DE JANEIRO, August 16. /TASS/. Brazil’s suspended President Dilma Rousseff said on Tuesday that her impeachment would be a coup, also saying she would support the idea of early elections if she regained her position.
This was said in a special appeal to the nation and senators circulated on Tuesday, several days before a crucial vote on her impeachment.
She said political mistrust did not constitute sufficient grounds for dismissing the head of state in a presidential republic. "It is necessary to produce proof of a crime. And it is absolutely obvious that there was no crime at all," she said. That is why impeachment would be a coup in these conditions, she said.
The suspended president said she was well aware of an acute political crisis in the country. She pledged that if reinstated, she would do all possible for holding a referendum where she would put to vote the initiative of holding early elections.
