The Economist explains: Will Dilma Rousseff survive impeachment proceedings?

"ON MARCH 18th Brazil’s political crisis entered a new phase. After months of procedural wrangling, congressmen voted to commence impeachment proceedings against Dilma Rousseff, the country’s embattled president. On paper, Ms Rousseff’s main sin is resorting to accounting trickery in order to disguise the true size of the budget deficit. In practice, she is paying the political price for mismanagement of the economy and a corruption scandal centred on Petrobras, the state oil company, which has engulfed her left-wing Workers’ Party (PT). Will she survive the ordeal?"
