New president vows to heal Brazil as Rousseff sacked
Wed, 31 Aug 2016 21:31:11 -0400
Brasília (AFP) - Brazil's Dilma Rousseff was stripped of the country's presidency in an emotional impeachment vote and replaced by conservative rival Michel Temer, who promised to heal Latin America's biggest economy. Temer, 75, was sworn in shortly after a majority of senators voted in a highly charged session to remove the leftist Rousseff, 68, on grounds that she illegally manipulated the state budget. Rousseff's successor shrugged off her claims that he had led a "coup" to seize power from her Workers' Party government, which has ruled Brazil for 13 years.
