Temer, who assumed the presidency on Thursday following suspension of his predecessor Dilma Rousseff’s over impeachment procedures, presided over the PMDB from 2001 until April 5, 2016.

On Thursday, the upper house of the Brazilian parliament voted 55-22 to open impeachment proceedings against President Dilma Rousseff after she was accused of concealing the country’s budget deficit ahead of the 2014 re-election. She was suspended for 180 days and her office was assumed by Vice President Michel Temer
