Embattled Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has accused the political opposition of seeking to oust her government by “coup-mongering”.
Speaking at a meeting of union leaders, Ms Rousseff also said her opponents were spreading hatred and intolerance across the country. Her comments come after an audit court last week ruled that she broke the law in managing last year’s budget.
The opposition says this could pave the way for impeachment proceedings. Ms Rousseff was re-elected less than a year ago but currently has record low popularity ratings.
