“After a process of more than eight months, 61 of the 81 Brazilian senators voted on Wednesday in favor of dismissing Dilma Rousseff as a president.
The Senate majority considered that Rousseff violated tax rules, committing “crimes of responsibility” to disguise the budget deficit, charges that she denies.
Rousseff, who was suspended from office in May, never completed half of her second term as a president.
The person who will instead replace her is the same who did in these past months, Michel Temer. The former vice president is now effective in office until the next elections in 2018.”
