Michel Temer has wanted to be President for years and now has the chance to rule the country. But with a destroyed economy and shadows of “golpism” hovering over his mandate, he is up for a bumpy ride.
On 31 August 2016, Michel Temer has become the new President of Brazil. Just a few hours before, the Senate had voted to impeach Dilma Rousseff, who has been dismissed from her role as President.
Temer’s mandate will expire on 1st of January 2019 (the original end date of Rousseff’s charge as President), when new elections will take place.
