Why Brazil OUSTED Dilma Rousseff as President? #HNNGov

Brazil's Senate has voted to remove President Dilma Rousseff from office for manipulating the budget.

It puts an end to the 13 years in power of her left-wing Workers' Party. Ms Rousseff had denied the charges.

Sixty-one senators voted in favour of her dismissal and 20 against, meeting the two-thirds majority needed to remove her from the presidency.

Michel Temer has been sworn in as president and will serve out Ms Rousseff's term until 1 January 2019.

She was accused of moving funds between government budgets, which is illegal under Brazilian law.

Her critics said she was trying to plug deficit holes in popular social programmes to boost her chances of being re-elected for a second term in October 2014. She called it a parliamentary coup. 

Even Venezuela removed the Brazilian ambassador and froze relations. I personally think she did a lot for that country as a female president. The World Cup and the Olympics went to that country, jobs were created but of course once you do one thing wrong, that's the end. Game over Dilma!
