Dilma Rousseff has been removed from presidential office after Brazil’s Senate voted to impeach her.

Senators voted by 61 to 20 to convict her of breaking budget laws, by ​ illegally using money from state banks to boost public spending.

Rousseff, who denies the charges, has said moves to impeach her were a constitutional coup d’etat

​Her conservative former Vice President Michel Temer, who has run the country since her suspension in May, will be sworn to serve out the remainder of her term through 2018.

​A separate vote will be held on whether Rousseff will be barred from public office for eight years.
