Brazil VP drops liaison role, remains in Rousseff government
By Leonardo Goy BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian Vice President Michel Temer has decided to drop his role as day-to-day political coordinator in Congress for President Dilma Rousseff but is not leaving her government, two sources in the administration said on Monday. Temer is an important ally of the embattled Rousseff and his decision will further hamstring the unpopular president, who is facing calls for her resignation or impeachment as the economy flounders. The sources, who asked not to be named, said Temer would no longer handle Rousseff's political relations with coalition allies, which have been tense due to corruption allegations and disagreement over budget cuts aimed at saving the country's investment-grade credit rating.
