Brazil Opposition Party not Seeking Impeachment: Cardoso

Former President Fernando Henrique Cardoso told Reuters, Brazil's biggest opposition party has no interest in impeaching President Dilma Rousseff despite recent street demonstrations calling for her ouster. Cardoso, who at 83 remains an influential leader in the centrist Brazilian Social Democracy Party (PSDB), said removing Rousseff so soon after she was re-elected would be destructive to Brazil's 30-year-old democracy, especially since prosecutors have found no evidence she participated in a corruption scheme at state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA. Cardoso, who led Brazil from 1995 to 2002 said, "Nobody should want impeachment, it's a very complex thing."
