A Mídia e os Bastidores da Política…
The Brazilian media on backstage politics…

A coluna Painel, da Folha de S.Paulo, publica hoje que “ministros do STF e o Palácio do Planalto reagiram com perplexidade diante da abertura da ação de cassação de mandato contra Dilma Rousseff pelo TSE. Ministros do Supremo que não atuam na Justiça Eleitoral avaliaram que a fragilidade política de Dilma é “sem precedentes.” A cozinha do governo foi pega de surpresa com a maioria pró-investigação, apesar de a ministra Luciana Lóssio ter pedido vista — prazo com o qual auxiliares da presidente contavam.” As primeiras providências na ação “devem ser solicitar material da Operação Lava Jato, de onde os ministros acreditam que podem vir provas de crimes eleitorais da petista.”

Folha de S.Paulo newspaper’s “Painel” column informs today that “the Brazilian Supreme Court justices and the Planalto Palace were puzzled by the opening of cassation* proceedings against Dilma Rousseff’s term in the TSE (Brazilian acronym for Superior Electoral Court). Brazilian Supreme Court justices who are not active in the electoral court have concluded that Dilma Rousseff’s political fragility is “unprecedented”. Government aides were surprised by the pro-investigation majority, although justice Luciana Lossio had requested to examine the paperwork — an extra time they were counting on.” The first steps in the proceedings “should be requesting material from the Car Wash Operation. That is where justices believe that proof of Dilma’s electoral crimes may come from.”
*Yeah, the word may seem strange, but it is the technical term for what’s going on. It is not a repeal, it is not an annulment, it is not an abrogation, it is not a cancellation. It is, indeed, a cassation.
