President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil has been suspended since May 12, awaiting her impeachment trial by the country’s Senate. In the meantime, an interim government has been formed by her vice president Michel Temer.

The impeachment process against Ms Rousseff has been branded a coup by her allies, who have pointed out that the charges against her, which focus on claims she violated budget laws, were based on relatively minor misdeeds that were also committed by many of her predecessors without consequences.

Ms Rousseff, of the Worker’s Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores or PT) was elected for the second time in 2014 by a small majority.

She was Brazil’s first female president and the impeachment process against her was denounced as “sexist political violence” by the United Nation’s office on women’s rights.
