Brazil’s Senate has voted to remove President Dilma Rousseff from office for manipulating the budget.
It puts an end to 13 years in power of her left-wing Workers’ Party. Ms Rousseff denies the charges.
Sixty-one Senators voted in favour of her impeachment and 20 against, meeting the two-thirds majority needed to remove her from the presidency.
Acting President Michel Temer will serve out Ms Rousseff’s term, which ends on 1 January 2019.
Mr Temer, from the centre-right PMDB party, is expected to be officially sworn in later on Wednesday.
