Brazil’s Socialism and Freedom Party (PSOL) presented to the Congress an impeachment motion against President Jair Bolsonaro.
PSOL also alleges Bolsonaro’s interference in the Federal Police (PF) with the resignation of delegate Maurício Valeixo at the helm and the support of the self-styled 300 groups from Brazil, made up of extreme right-wing activists.
The PSOL impeachment petition sums up to over 30 destitution requests against Bolsonaro in Brazil. The Workers’ Party (PT), Communist Party of Brazil (PCdoB), Unified Socialist Workers’ Party (PSTU), Brazilian Communist Party (PCB), and Popular Unity UP also supports the demand.
Rodrigo Maia, President of the Brazilian House of Representatives, will determine if the impeachment demands are pertinent and if the legislative body initiates a legal inquiry process.
