SAO PAULO May 29 Brazilian Finance Minister
Henrique Meirelles said on Monday he believe scandal-hit
President Michel Temer will survive a corruption investigation
and serve out his full term.
Meirelles told journalists at an event hosted by Exame
magazine in Sao Paulo that he is not even considering becoming
the caretaker president should Temer be ousted, despite the
minister's name being floated as a possible fill-in.
If Temer is forced from office, Brazil's congress will
choose a president to finish his term, which runs through the
end of 2018.
