“Today we are on the right track – we put the country back on track. The one who will take over the management of a locomotive in 2018 (when in Brazil should pass General election – approx. TASS), you will see that the rails are in place. So now we need to keep moving . When we come to the end of 2018, the house will be put in order,” said Temer.

“Our government planned trajectory will not be interrupted. We will firmly uphold the reform plan, from which we can not refuse”, – the President added.

In mid-may in the largest South American country sparked the corruption scandal, which directly affected the President. Brazilian entrepreneurs, the brothers Lesli and Wesley Batista was handed over to the Federal Supreme court an audiotape on which Temer allegedly asked to bribe the former Chairman of the lower house of Parliament Eduardo Qunu, the initiator of the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff. According to the investigation, money intended for “buy silence” Cunha. Police also have video footage of one of the closest advisers to the President Rodrigo Rocha Loures puts a large sum of money in a suitcase.

Against this background, several opposition politicians have written to the Chairman of the lower house of Parliament Rodrigo Maia request for impeachment of the President. In addition, in respect of Temer, an investigation was initiated on items such as corruption, obstructing justice and organization of criminal community. The Brazilian leader is now officially a suspect in corruption. Temer denied the accusations of attempted bribery Cunha and appealed to the court for termination of the investigation.

According to the head of state, compromising his record “is bogus”, since the dialogue has been artificially mounted. According to the Brazilian Constitution, even if Temer will be dismissed, the direct holding of early elections are not expected for the new national leader will have to identify the Parliament. National elections head of state in any case will be held before the end of 2018. A different development is possible only with the amendment of the basic law of the country.
