Brazil’s interim lower house chief Waldir Maranhao called for a new vote on the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff, in a surprise move that prompted a selloff across local markets.
Maranhao said he annulled the lower house vote last month in favor of Rousseff’s impeachment, citing procedural irregularities, according to a statement sent by the press office of the lower house presidency. The decision comes in response to a request by the attorney-general’s office.
