Brazil impeachment vote to follow Olympics: official

Suspended Brazilian President Dilma meets with foreign correspondents at Alvorada Palace in Brasilia on June 14, 2016Brasília (AFP) – Legislators will vote on removing Brazil’s suspended president Dilma Rousseff from office just days after the Olympic Games end in Rio, the Senate president said Thursday. The vote will take place between August 25-27 after a final debate, Renan Calheiros — who is overseeing Rousseff’s impeachment trial in the upper house — told journalists in the capital Brasilia. The Senate had originally considered August 16 for the impeachment vote before moving the date to August 22, which was also rejected as too close to the Games, amid fears that political tensions would ruin the atmosphere.
