Attempts to impeach Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff have stalled as the acting speaker of lower house of the Congress annulled the impeachment process on Monday and called for a new vote.
The decision by Waldir Maranhao – who came into office last week – comes as the impeachment process was passed to the Senate for a vote, following last month’s decision in the lower house. The upper chamber was set to vote on Wednesday.
Procedural irregularities were detected during the April vote that ended with the lower chamber accepting impeachment charges against Rousseff, Maranhao said, according to Reuters.
