Published: May 11 2016 10:30 am Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff Related News Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is facing possible impeachment by Congress with the Senate expected to vote Wednesday on a measure to suspend her The effort comes amid an angry public mood over the South American nation’s worst recession in decades and a big bribery scandal at the state oil company Petrobras Yet it is not tied to either of those The Associated Press explains what’s behind the movement to oust her and how it could play out WHAT IS ROUSSEFF ACCUSED OF DOING She is accused of breaking fiscal laws by shifting around government funds to plug budget holes Opposition parties say sleight of hand accounting allowed her to boost public spending to shore up support Rousseff denies any wrongdoing saying she didn’t do anything that was not common practice in all prior administrations She further argues that she isn’t being charged with a crime which should be the basis for any impeachment WHAT WAS THE FIRST STEP OF IMPEACHMENT Last month the Chamber of Deputies voted 367-137 to send the impeachment measure to the Senate The overwhelming favorable vote added momentum to the impeachment push The Senate had been seen as friendlier to Rousseff than the lower house and more likely to reject impeachment but the lower chamber vote seemed to change that dynamic WHAT’S THE LATEST If a simple majority of the 81 senators vote in favor Wednesday and several counts by newspapers suggest that will happen then Rousseff will be suspended and Vice President Michel Temer will take over The Senate will then have 180 days to conduct a trial and vote whether to permanently remove Rousseff If that happens Temer would serve out her term ending Dec 31 2018 COULD ANYTHING STOP THE PROCESS The government and opposition parties have filed appeals to Brazil’s highest court on many aspects of the process so the possibility exists that the court or even individual justices could intervene On Monday the lower house’s acting Speaker Waldir Maranhao annulled the chamber’s April vote in favor of impeachment arguing there were irregularities and it had to be re-voted on However under pressure from his party he did an about-face Tuesday and rescinded his annulment HOW DO ROUSSEFF’S SUPPORTERS AND DETRACTORS CHARACTERISE THE SITUATION Government supporters call the impeachment push a coup because Rousseff has not been charged with any crime They say Brazil’s traditional ruling class has been unnerved by the social movement under Rousseff’s Worker’s Party over more than a decade in power and is seizing the opportunity to take back power Opponents say the administration’s maneuvering of funds was illegal and an attempt to mask problems in Latin America’s largest economy such as huge budget gaps that have surfaced over the last year They say impeachment can’t be considered a coup because it’s allowed in the constitution For all the latest World News download Indian Express

a newly expanded marine reserve on an atoll in the middle of the Pacific Ocean part of an effort to polish his environmental legacy Obama flew three hours west of his native Honolulu to Midway Atoll on the far northwestern tip of the Hawaiian island chain The atoll is situated at the heart of Papahanaumokuakea a vast Pacific marine reserve given protected status by then-president George W Bush in 2006 Obama recently quadrupled its size to make it the world’s largest marine reserve home to 7000 marine species including many endangered birds as well as the Hawaiian monk seal and black coral which can live for 4500 years “This is going to be a precious resource for generations to come” Obama told reporters on Midway’s Turtle Beach All the atoll’s 40 inhabitants — mostly US Fish and Wildlife Service staff — greeted him Until recently the area was perhaps best known to military history buffs Seventy-four years ago the Battle of Midway was a decisive naval fight in World War II that turned the tide of the war against Japan Obama praised the “courage and perseverance” of the vastly outnumbered American soldiers who repelled Japanese forces “This is hallowed ground” he said Now he added protecting the vast ecosystem “allows us to study and research and understand our oceans better than we ever have before” The president was later set to go snorkeling with friends away from journalists the White House said Since taking office in 2009 he has designated more protected areas than any of his predecessors using the Antiquities Act signed in 1906 by Theodore Roosevelt who established the first national monuments For the outgoing president the visit is part of an eight-year effort to put the environment and tackling climate change higher on the political agenda Scientists would be able to undertake “critically important” study of climate change in the marine reserve he said Although Bush created Papahanaumokuakea he also earned international scorn by
