Should she succeed the question is how will she manage the country with only 28% support from Congress??
Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff on Monday pledged to continue fighting an impeachment process that she considers a threat to democracy and a personal affront.
Visibly downcast, Rousseff struck a personal tone in her first speech since the lower house of Congress on Sunday voted to put her on trial in the Senate. She likened the current struggle to her fight against Brazil’s 1964-85 military dictatorship.
“I feel wronged. They won’t kill my hope,” Rousseff told reporters at the presidential palace in Brasilia. “It’s not the beginning of the end. We’re at the beginning of a fight — a long, drawn-out fight.”
