For the brazilians users in here, who can give me a more real and trustful answer: Can you explain me what the hell is happening in Brazil right now?

 

Here (in Portugal) they're showing a lot of confusing news about the "impeachment", showing the people in the streets, and the mess in the parlament, but there's something the Tv news never talk about and that I still don't understand: why all this? why is the parlament "kicking" away the Brazilian President? what was the trigger? :mumble:

If you have a country with a "wild" parliament, this may happen. Usually PMs are the one impeached, but this the first time I ever knew a president is going to be impeached (Indonesia has done it once though, after the president tried to abolish the Indonesian People's Consultative Assembly). I heard that there is a national petroleum company corruption scandal and other things that made Rouseff lost public support. They said that it is going to bring Brazil to recession on the economy... Maybe any Brazillian user can help more regarding this issue

Brazil has a presidential system, not a parliamentary one. The head of government and the head of state is the same person, so there is no PM, only a president.

I suppose you speak Portuguese, then indicate this link. It is a picture sequence with texts that explain the situation.

 

About Rio 2016 and this crisis: link.

 

Personal opinion: it is very much a war for power than something that emanates from the people. Overall, the Brazilian citizen is very poorly politicized. It is very easy to use it with mass anti-government maneuver.

 

Another issue is that our House of Deputies (I dont know if it's the right term in english) is a joke. Yesterday we had fascists and religious discourses and politicians using their time to send kiss to the family during the impeachment vote.

 Wow, thank you for that link, very well explained! (Btw, didn't know there was an ElPais from Brazil :d)

 

I kind of had that "joke" opinion like you do, because yesterday the House of Deputies voting was broadcasted live on our news' channels, and I saw a bit of it, and it felt really weird both that kind of speachs and the cards that the very politicians brought to the voting saying "TCHAU QUERIDA".

 

But once again, that's what the media broadcasts, so that's why is allways good to have an opinion from the inside :)

Today was election in Serbia. Election for republican parliament, provincial parliament (AP Vojvodina) and municipal elections. SNS won again with about 50% votes. At least 3 more will be in parliament (SPS,SRS,DS for sure) and maybe 1-2 more (ex president Tadic with his party is one of them).

Maybe it is time to open a thread for the flag-bearers for Rio. :d Unsurprisingly after his 2012 absence Rafael Nadal is chosen to be Spains flag-bearer.
