New Era Beckons for Brazil As Rousseff Faces Downfall
This Wednesday may be the last day in office for President Dilma Rousseff, as Brazil’s Senate gears up for a vote that would force her out and into an impeachment trial she appears unlikely to survive. The Senate debate is scheduled to last 10 hours and end with a vote around 7 p.m. local time, the chamber’s speaker Renan Calheiros said. Surveys by the country’s major newspapers show the opposition has 50 or 51 votes, more than the simple majority of the 81 seats necessary to put her on impeachment trial. Bloomberg's Andrew Barden reports and Connor Broadley CIO Chris Wyllie gives some analysis to Anna Edwards in London and Manus Cranny in Dubai on "Countdown."
