#Brazil - Inside Story - Was president Dilma Rousseff's impeachment a coup? / Brasil - você Presidente Dilma Rousseff impeachment e sopa?

Published on 13 May 2016
The twists and turns of Brazil's political drama have been compared to the TV series, House of Cards.

Deeply unpopular leader Dilma Rousseff has been suspended from office and taking her place as interim president is a man perhaps even more polarising than her.

Michel Temer is seen as serving the interests of Brazil's business elite and despite calling for unity, he's appointed a cabinet made up entirely of white men.

President Dilma Rousseff has called her suspension from office a "coup" and has vowed to fight back.

But is Michel Temer the right leader to lift Brazil out of its political crisis? And was Rousseff's impeachment a democratic move or a coup?

Presenter: Fauziah Ibrahim

Guests:

Rodrigo Nunes - Political Analyst and Lecturer at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro.

Shannon Sims - Journalist who focuses on Brazilian politics and the Olympics.

Claudio Couto - Political Scientist and Associate Professor at the Getulio Vargas Foundation.
