Report summary

Brazil's Chamber of Deputies voted in favour of opening an impeachment trial against President Dilma Rousseff on 17 April. The debate now turns to the senate and indications suggest the upper chamber has the requisite majority votes to do the same. If passed Rousseff will be forced to temporarily step down as the impeachment trial could begin as soon as mid May.While these hearings have distracted lawmakers an impeachment trial may open a legislative path in the coming months for a contentious pre salt bill under review. While this bill alone will not solve the many challenges confronting Brazil's oil & gas sector it would be a move in the right direction.
