Brazil's Temer sees healthy institutions in electoral court ruling

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian President Michel Temer saw an electoral court ruling in his favour on Friday as a sign of effective institutions keeping the country’s democracy working, his spokesman said in brief televised remarks following the court’s decision.

Brazil’s top electoral court dismissed a case that threatened to unseat Temer for alleged illegal campaign funding in the 2014 election, when he was the running mate of impeached President Dilma Rousseff.
