MADRID (Sputnik) — According to the statement, the only legal and democratic way to change the presidential mandate is to win an election.
"Podemos urges the Government of Spain not to recognize the Brazilian government formed unlawfully as result of the ousting of President Dilma. We urge our government not to forget the commitment to democracy that should guide our foreign policy as a fundamental principle," Podemos said in a statement.
On Wednesday, the Brazilian Senate voted 61-20 to impeach Rousseff. A subsequent vote to bar Rousseff from holding public office for eight years failed. Brazil’s former Vice President Michel Temer was sworn in as the country’s new leader.
After the Senate vote, Ecuador, Venezuela and Bolivia all recalled their ambassadors from Brazil.
Temer will now serve as president until the new presidential elections in Brazil, scheduled to take place at the end of 2018.
