BRASILIA, Brazil – Former President Dilma Rousseff, who was ousted this week, is slamming the process that led to her demise and promising to provide a strong opposition voice to the new government.
In comments to foreign media Friday, Rousseff said she would be moving back to her hometown of Porto Alegre in southern Brazil.
Rousseff says she has not developed plans beyond that, but won't shy away from public life.
The Senate voted to remove Rousseff for breaking fiscal responsibility laws in her management of the federal budget.
Rousseff also had sharp words for Michel Temer, who was her vice president before taking over in the wake of her removal. She said that if he doesn't govern on the platform the two ran on, people will see his government as illegitimate.
