“The country is experiencing severe political and institutional crisis of this magnitude than ever before. Every day there is growing evidence that the current unelected by anyone, the President of the Republic has no right to mandate”, underlined Rousseff.
She added that the impeachment process was initiated without any legal grounds and was accompanied by gross violations.
Political crisis in Brazil broke out after the recording appeared, which Temer supposedly discusses “buying the silence” of former speaker of the house, Eduardo Cunha.
