As Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment vote draws near, the top brass at the nation’s largest companies is beginning to break its silence.

That’s kept corporate Brazil reticent even as the stock market has soared this year over the prospect of a more market-friendly government.
Now, with lawmakers preparing for a vote Sunday, executives are getting more vocal about how enduring months of political drama has affected their businesses. Their message? It’s time for a resolution.
