Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff's approval ratings languished in September, held down by the country’s economic and political crises, as her opposition in Congress considers opening impeachment proceedings.
Brazilian Vice President Michel Temer said it would be difficult for head of state Dilma Rousseff to last until the scheduled end of her second presidential term in 2018 without a rise in her approval rating, which currently stands at just 8%, the local press reported Friday.
Hundreds of thousands of angry of citizens are expected to take to the streets of more than 114 Brazilian cities on Sunday as allegations of corruption and incompetence swamp the government, and plummeting commodity prices sap its economy, posing a key test for President Dilma Rousseff.
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff's approval ratings have struck rock bottom with nearly seven out of ten Brazilians in favor of having Congress begin impeachment proceedings against the beleaguered leader of Latin America's largest economy, according to the latest opinion poll release. A nationwide rally calling her for resignation is planned for August 16.
