  1. Two great news: By 11 to 9, the ethics committee approves cassation of Cunha's term http://g1.globo.com/politica/noticia/2016/06/em-votacao-apertada-conselho-de-etica-aprova-cassar-eduardo-cunha.html Lula is back to Sérgio Moro! Lava Jato operation is preparing 3 denounces against Lula http://epoca.globo.com/tempo/noticia/2016/06/forca-tarefa-da-lava-jato-prepara-tres-denuncias-contra-lula.html
  2. No. Brazilian Constitution doesn't allow immediate elections after a impeachment trial. After a president is impeached, the presidency becomes constitutional right of the VP, since, he was also elected by the popular vote. A coup would be trying to overthrow/change the constitution to convoke elections before the right time just because some people don't like the president (interim, so far). Though, new elections are constitutional if the new president also is subjected to an impeachment trial. In any other case, convoking presidential elections before 2018 would be unconstitutional. By the way, this is not just about 'counting how any people are in red vs green shirts', the fact is that the vast majority of the population supports the impeachment (assured by the Constitution and following each of the legal procedures) and totally rejects Rousseff's government and all the last survey prove that. BothRousseff's rejection is way higher than Temer's. Last survey (CNT-MDA) JUNE Negative Rating Rousseff: 62.4% Temer: 28.0% Impeachment Support In favor: 62.4% Against: 33.0% Complete article: http://veja.abril.com.br/noticia/brasil/avaliacao-do-governo-temer-e-similiar-a-de-dilma-diz-pesquisa Reasonably, new protests against Rousseff haven't been observed since at least for now she's been removed. Still, new protests are already scheduled to July 31st, to defend the definitive removal of Dilma Rousseff. Michel Temer is called 'interim president' because his current political situation is still considered provisory since the impeachment process is not over. Dilma's final judgement will be in August (at least, according to the current schedule approved by the Impeachment Comission), until there she will have the right to defend herself and the accusation will be once again presented to the Senate and to the Supreme Court. After that, if Rousseff loses her term, Temer becomes the president until 2018 when new presidential elections are set to happen.
  3. Exactly. Red color predominating as usual. A reunion of the people who are mad since the money PT was giving them was cut being lead by a criminal, leader of the worst corruption scandals in Brazil's history, accused of misrepresentation, illegal enrichment, improper conduct, obstruction of justice and main negotiator of Petrolão bribes scheme. Hopefully, he'll soon be arrested. That's the real size of the "protest": Nothing when compared to this: March 15 (protest in favor of the impeachment)
