First Brazil impeachment session ends after 12-hour debate

The lower house special committee of impeachment against President Dilma Rousseff, with its chairman Brazilian Deputy Rogerio Rosso, sit in a session to discuss the report submitted by Deputy Jovair Arantes on April 8, 2016Brasília (AFP) – The congressional commission preparing to recommend whether or not to impeach Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff closed its first meeting early Saturday after 12 hours of sometimes heated debate. Rousseff is accused of breaking the law by juggling government accounts to disguise the depth of budget shortfalls during her 2014 reelection. Momentum for her removal however is being fueled by a massive recession, political paralysis and a sprawling corruption scandal that have reduced approval ratings for Rousseff’s government to around 10 percent.
