Brazil Senate insists Rousseff impeachment vote to go ahead

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff at Planalto Palace in Brasilia, on May 9, 2016Brasília (AFP) – The impeachment process against Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff got back on track Monday after descending into confusion with leaders of the Senate and lower house of Congress arguing over whether it should continue. Rousseff faces being suspended from office if the Senate votes — as now appears likely — to open an impeachment trial at a session starting Wednesday. Maranhao said the original vote by lower house deputies sending Rousseff to face the Senate had “prejudged” the president and denied her “the right to a full defense.” He called for the Senate to halt proceedings and for the lower house to hold a new vote.
