IOC not worried by potential Rousseff impeachment ahead of Rio Games

Berlin (dpa) - The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has said it is not concerned that the potential impeachment of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff will have an impact on the upcoming Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro.

"The preparations for the Olympic Games are now in a very operational phase, in which this type of political problem has much less influence than at other levels of organization," an IOC spokesperson told dpa.

"During our visit to Rio de Janeiro in previous weeks we have seen the great progress which has been made. We therefore remain confident that the Olympic Games in August will be a success."

The lower house of the Brazilian parliament voted for impeachment by a two-thirds majority on Sunday, meaning the senate can now suspend Rousseff from office for 180 days at the end of April with a simple majority.

This would mean Rousseff is unable to attend the opening of the Games on August 5.

"The Brazilian people are known for their passion for sport and will deliver an forgettable Olympic Games," the IOC spokesperson said. "The Olympic Games ... provide an important opportunity for the people of Brazil to unite regardless of their background or political views."
