This morning, Paraguayan legislators approved to initiate the impeachment against President Fernando Lugo, allegedly responsible for the slaughter that left 17 dead while he, his staff and the 3 leaders of the Armed Forces, were at the government palace.
Blas Llano, president of the Liberal Party, announced that his movement “does not take political responsibility for the administration of President Lugo” and withdrew his support. Then Llano asked four leaders of the Armed Forces to submit their resignations.
Now the process of impeachment has passed the Senate. This procedure could end the goverment of Lugo, a former bishop whose presidency was marked by paternity scandals and the recovery from a lymphatic cancer.
