In a report of the printed edition of the next day 26 March, The Economist says that the chances of President Dilma Rousseff to remain in office are “decreasing every day” by the speed of events that undermine their power taking place in Brazilian politics.

The text was anticipated in the Economist website with the title “Tick Tock”, in reference to a clock ticks.

Second Magazine, Dilma's mandate withstands an already open impeachment proceedings in the House, while receiving bombings by new evidence in Operation Lava Jato, as the tipoff of the Amaral Delcídio senator and the fateful conversation about the proper term released by wiretapping of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva asked for Sergio Moro.

“While deputies vote [in the impeachment process], near 300 thousand supporters of the PT take the demonstration in the streets, in support of their leaders in trouble”, says the magazine. “Before the crowds were dispersed, Lula's appointment as minister was blocked by a Supreme Court justice.”

The Economist notes that the country is suffering its worst recession since the early 1930, but, even so, is a rate of uncontrolled political upheaval. The events of 16 a 18 March are part of what are leaving the country “angry and perplexed”.

“Thus ended the most hectic and strange 72 hours the recent history of Brazil”, says. “They left the weakened president, possibly fatal form, the reputation of its predecessor, before revered, shredded, and the judge conducting the investigation at Petrobras, Sergio Moro, also damaged.”

A British magazine, as usual, lists the degraded economic indices and projects a scenario with the vice president, Michel Temer (PMDB), can not. The Economist suggests that the politician could bring a Minister of Finance stronger, with capacity “push emergency measures”, as a tax on financial transactions (an example is the CPMF), to reduce the budget deficit.

“Most Brazilians do not share this enthusiasm . Only one in six thinks that a government led by Mr. Fearing it would be good”, reminds the magazine in reference to the latest survey Datafolha. “This is understandable. Six members of the PMDB are being investigated in the case of Petrobras, including the President of the Senate, Renan Calheiros, and the mayor, Eduardo Cunha.”

“If Dilma will or is, they can remain in office until after an election in 2018. The renewal that Brazilians crave is years away.”

In the same issue in question, the British magazine defends, em editorial, it's time for President Dilma leaving office.

Second or text, the choice of former President Lula for the House was one “crude attempt to impede the course of justice”. The publication says that the change in the presidency of the Republic would pave the way for “new beginning” no Brasil.
