Deputy Paulo Teixeira of the Workers' Party (of which Rousseff is a member) warned against breaking the law as far as the impeachment is concerned.
"The impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff will never take place. I am absolutely sure that Brazilian society sees substitution of concepts and attempts to bypass the law that were not uncommon ahead of the impeachment vote. Society demands that parliamentarians should adhere to the rule of law, and we pledge to stick to it," Teixeira told Sputnik.
Deputy Caio Narcio, for his part, accused supporters of President Rousseff of making the impeachment vote political.
"In my opinion, the situation in Brazil is very much politicized. Suffice it to mention the government's countless yet unsuccessful appeals to the Supreme Court in an effort to prevent an absolutely legitimate impeachment vote, which is seen by the government as a coup," Narcio said.
The interviews came after a committee from the lower house (Chamber of Deputies) of Brazil's National Congress approved a report recommending the impeachment of Rousseff. If two-thirds of the lower house vote for the measure, the motion will go to the Senate (upper house).
Earlier this week, the Progressive Party (PP) and the Social Democratic Party (PSD) left Rousseff’s coalition. The Brazilian Democratic Movement Party left the governing coalition in late March.
In March 2015, the first wave of protests against the government of Rousseff brought together at least 500,000 people, becoming the largest political demonstration registered in Brazil since 1984.
