Last October 26, Brazilian parliament voted to not allow investigations on President Michel Temer for corruption charges by short margin: 251 x 233.
The Brazilian press noticed that many members of parliament got extra benefits for relieving president Temer from full investigations for the second time this year.
The general perception is that president Temer administration became a “lame duck” that means powerless to rule till the end of his mandate in December 2018.
Eurasia consultancy announced that president Temer has only 7% people`s support for his administration. He is the most unpopular across major countries ahead of Jacob Zuma from South Africa who has 18% people`s support, Nicolas Maduro from Venezuela with 23% and Pena Nieto from Mexico with 28%. Thereza May from UK has 31%, Donald Trump from America 37% and Macron from France 45%.
Social media reacted strongly against president Temer after he went to hospital, expressing support for his illness, last week.
