Embattled Brazilian President, Dilma Rousseff Removed From Office In Historic Brazil Impeachment Vote

President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil has been removed from office by the country's Senate. She was removed for manipulating the budget. Sixty-one Senators against 20 voted in favour of the impeachment Wednesday. Ms Rousseff was suspended in May after the Senate voted to go ahead with the impeachment process. Brazil’s lawmakers accused her of re-assigning funds between budget items.

Her critics said she was trying to plug deficit holes in popular social programmes to boost her chances of being re-elected for a second term in October 2014, reports the BBC. 

Ms Rousseff said she did nothing wrong, and called the attempt to remove her a coup d’etat.

Her impeachment puts an end to 13 years in power of her Workers’ Party.

Acting President Michel Temer will serve out her term, which ends on 1 January 2019.
