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.
