______________________________________President Rousseff has denied the allegations and argues that the accusations do not constitute an impeachable offence. A simple majority is needed to go to the next stage of voting the lower house of congress later this week. An opposition politician Vandelay Marcris said the current government was paralyzed and the impeachment was the only way forward. "We hope the impeachment is important to Brazilian society and that we can have change, and that with this change we can really begin to look to the future and to the light of the end of tunnel. Because this presidency, if it remains in power, it won't be in condition the govern(ing), that's the tragedy the administration we seen in our country today."
