"My expectation in relation to the ' impeachment ' are we going to get the votes needed for the removal of President Dilma Rousseff for the crime of responsibility that the President has committed to not refer to the National Congress to allocate and manage resources of banks, State-owned banks," says Antoni o Carlos Gomes da Silva, of the Republican Party of Brazil.

The faction of Dilma Rousseff defends the illegality of the process and even talks on coup.

"There are two elements that leave no doubt that this is a blow to the Constitution. The first is that the process was opened without ' public interest '. The second aspect is that in Brazil there is the possibility of impeachment of a President of the Republic, but only when it's proven a crime of responsibility and no chance to say that the President has had bad faith or intent to commit a crime, "says Paulo Pimenta, of the workers ' Party.
