Brazil’s PMDB party quits ruling coalition

The PMDB, the largest party in Brazil’s ruling coalition, has voted for an “immediate exit” from President Dilma Rousseff’s government.The move could hasten impeachment proceedings against President Rousseff, correspondents say.

Opposition lawmakers want to remove Ms Rousseff over claims she manipulated accounts to hide a growing deficit. Following Tuesday’s vote, the embattled president cancelled a trip to attend a summit in Washington this week.(BBC,2016)
