MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – On Wednesday, Brazil’s former vice president Michel Temer was sworn in as the country’s new leader after the Senate voted to remove Rousseff from her presidential post.
La Nacion reported later on Wednesday that Brazil responded to the moves by calling in its ambassadors in the three countries "for consultations."
In May, the upper house of the Brazilian parliament voted 55-22 to start impeachment proceedings against Rousseff after she was accused of concealing the country’s budget deficit ahead of the 2014 election. Rousseff was suspended from office for 180 days. Michel Temer, who had been Brazil's vice president since 2011, assumed presidency during that period.
Temer will now serve as president until 2019, when new elections will take place in Brazil.
