Brazilian Senate successfully impeaches President Rousseff

BRAZIL—After 13 years in power, the Brazil’s Workers’ Party (PT) saw its reign fall like a great wall with Brazil’s Senate voting and approving the impeachment of now former President Dilma Rousseff.

The Senate impeached Brazil’s first female president on Aug. 31, removing her from office for the rest of her term. The decision was the capstone of a power struggle that has consumed the nation for months, and has toppled one of the hemisphere’s most powerful political parties.

Rousseff’s defeat occurred when the 81 Senators voted 61 to 20 to terminate her term. Rousseff was convicted on charges of manipulating the federal budget in an effort to conceal the nation’s mounting economic problems.

The impeachment puts a definitive end to an era during which Brazil’s economy boomed, lifting millions into the middle class and raising the country’s profile on the global stage.”
