247 - Assim como vários outros veículos da imprensa internacional, como The Guardian, El País, CNN e Der Spiegel, o NYT, maior jornal do mundo, também condenou o golpe parlamentar liderado por Eduardo Cunha & Cia, que transformou o Brasil numa república bananeira aos olhos do mundo.

Segundo editorial, as pedaladas fiscais foram um pretexto para um referendo sobre o PT, no poder desde 2003: “Dilma, que foi reeleita em 2014 por quatro anos, está sendo responsabilizada pela crise econômica do país e pelas revelações das investigações de corrupção que envolvem a classe política brasileira”, diz o texto.

President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil is likely to be kicked out of office based on allegations that she used money from state banks to balance the budget. But that fundamental issue appeared almost an afterthought as lawmakers in the Chamber of Deputies cited a litany of grievances before resoundingly supporting a motion toimpeach her by a vote of 367 to 137.

The case against Ms. Rousseff is about much more than taking liberties in balancing the budget, which other elected officials in Brazil have done without drawing much scrutiny. In essence, it is a referendum on the ruling Workers’ Party, which has been in power since 2003. Ms. Rousseff, who was re-elected in 2014 for a four-year term, is being blamed for the country’s economic crisis and the overlapping corruption investigations that have ensnarled much of Brazil’s political establishment.

The motion to impeach now moves to the Senate, which can approve or reject it with a simple majority. If the Senate votes to impeach Ms. Rousseff next month, she will be forced to step down temporarily while senators consider the allegations against her. If she is found guilty, Vice President Michel Temer, a former ally of Ms. Rousseff, who has turned against her, will take power.

The president faces two main choices. She can call for early elections, appeasing those who believe that the country’s political crisis is unlikely to be solved until a new leader is elected. Or she can fight the impeachment and hope to somehow regain the public’s trust.

In a defiant address to the nation on Monday afternoon, Ms. Rousseff called the impeachment proceedings a “coup,” and she vowed to stay in office until the end of her mandate in 2018 for the sake of democracy. “This is just the beginning of the fight, which will be long and democratic,” she said.
