Brazil president warns of 'putsch' ahead of impeachment vote

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff delivers a speech at Planalto Palace in Brasilia on March 30, 2016Brasília (AFP) – Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said Wednesday she was the victim of a coup as her allies horse-traded frantically for enough votes to ride out an impeachment drive. “Impeachment is a putschist process that is out of line with the country’s trajectory since returning to democracy,” Rousseff said in a speech in Brasilia, referring to the end of Brazil’s two decades military dictatorship in 1985. A months-long crisis reducing Latin America’s biggest country to political paralysis ahead of the Rio Olympics deepened Tuesday when Rousseff’s Workers’ Party lost its main coalition partner, the centrist PMDB.
