Brazil’s president keeps job as congress votes against corruption charges

Lawmakers overwhelmingly oppose charges for Michel Temer despite broad popular support, as observers condemn ‘bankruptcy of political system’

The credibility of Brazil’s congress has been left in rags after its lower house overwhelmingly voted not to approve corruption charges against the president, Michel Temer – even though 81% of his countrymen said in a recent poll that they should.

Temer was charged with corruption after a close aide was given $150,000 in cash – part of $12m in bribes prosecutors allege he and the aide were due to receive after intervening in a business deal.

Two-thirds of the lower house had to approve the charges before the supreme court could confirm the decision and suspend the president for up to 180 days for a corruption trial. But more than half of its deputies deputes voted for Temer, giving him a clear victory, as had been widely expected, and saving his beleaguered presidency – at least for now.

“I want to construct a better country for each Brazilian, pacified, just, without hate or rancor. Our inexorable destiny is to be a great nation,” Temer said in a victory address. “I thank the Chamber of Deputies.”

The decision came just over a year after many of the same deputies voted to suspend Temer’s predecessor, Dilma Rousseff, for breaking budget rules – charges that led to her eventual impeachment.

Brasil: en una tumultuosa sesión, la Cámara de Diputados rechazó la denuncia por corrupción contra Temer

Para el presidente, que tiene apenas un 5% de popularidad, fue una demostración de fuerza política en medio del enfrentamiento con la Justicia y ante las crecientes críticas de la sociedad

En un breve mensaje desde el Palacio del Planalto, Temer apuntó que el resultado en Diputados era “claro e incontestable”, y que ahora su gobierno tendrá más fuerza para acabar con las divisiones en el país, crear puestos de trabajo y restaurar el crecimiento económico después de la peor recesión en la historia de Brasil.
