Judge Herman Benjamin of Brazil’s higher court on electoral affairs, is the rapporteur of the lawsuit on allegedly irregularities in the presidencial campaign of Dilma Rousseff and Michel Temer in 2014. Judge Benjamin closed Tuesday (March 21) the process briefing phase, that is, the stage of collecting evidence. He has granted two days for the parties to present their final allegations.
More than 40 witnesses were heard, to find out whether the ticket Dilma-Temer has committed abuse of political and economic power in the campaign, what would justify declaring the elections null and void. The rapporteur had already said that he intended to submit his report by April – then the action should be taken for consideration in the TSE plenary.
