Brazil's Dilma Rousseff impeached by Federal Senate in crushing defeat

Baku, September 1, AZERTAC

Brazil’s first female president Dilma Rousseff has been thrown out of office by the country’s corruption-tainted senate after a grueling impeachment trial that ends 13 years of Workers’ Party rule, according to the Guardian.

Following a crushing 61 to 20 defeat in the upper house, she will be replaced for the remaining two years and four months of her term by Michel Temer, a center-right patrician who was among the leaders of the campaign against his former running mate.
