Rousseff refuses to fade away after Brazil presidency exit


Former Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff is slamming the process that led to her being ousted this week and promising to provide a strong opposition voice to the new government.

In comments to foreign media, she said she would move back to her home town of Porto Alegre in southern Brazil.

Ms Rousseff said she has not developed plans beyond that, but will not shy away from public life.

The Senate voted to remove her for breaking fiscal responsibility laws in her management of the federal budget.

Ms Rousseff also had sharp words for Michel Temer, who was her vice president before taking over in the wake of her removal. She said that if he does not govern on the platform the two ran on, people will see his government as illegitimate.
