SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – Yesterday Brasilia registered a wave of meetings and late-night dinners as both government allies and opposition try to garner votes from representatives of Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies, which today (Wednesday August 2nd) are deciding whether or not to accept corruption charges against President Michel Temer.
The government needs 172 votes to win the vote. The opposition, on the other hand, needs two-thirds of the 513 votes (342) to reject the opinion approved by the Chamber’s Commission on Constitution and Justice which voted to dismiss the complaint . . .
