The Latest: Brazil opposition sees tough road for Rousseff

Brasilia, Brazil - The Latest on the debate on impeachment of Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff (all times local):

7:15 a.m.

Sen. Romero Juca says the 55-22 vote to impeach Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff suggests it would be very difficult for her to win her mandate back during the impeachment trial.

Jura is from the opposition Democratic Movement Party, the main motor behind the impeachment.

Vice President Michel Temer will now take over while the Senate conducts a trial within the next 180 days.

Juca says: "It was a painful process, a process that has changed Brazil - but it is necessary to change Brazil. People today are having difficulties. Thousands of people are losing their jobs every day, companies are closing. Life is getting worse. It's not possible to continue the way things are."

Sen. Humberto Costa, the Workers' Party leader in the Senate, acknowledged the government's defeat and pledged to be a "strong and hard" opposition to the new Temer government.

6:35 a.m.

Brazil's Senate has voted 55-22 to impeach the South American giant's first woman president.

President Dilma Rousseff is accused of using accounting tricks to hide large budget deficits.

Rousseff will be suspended and replaced for up to six months by Vice President Michel Temer pending a trial in the Senate. The trial will determine whether Rousseff can serve out her second term, or whether her ally-turned-enemy, Temer, will remain in the top job through the December 2018 end of the term.

The result represents a victory for the pro-impeachment camp. It was significantly higher than the simple majority of 41 votes needed to suspend her. It sends a signal that Rousseff faces an uphill battle to return to power.

Thursday's vote capped a marathon session in the Senate that lasted more than 20 hours.

1:00 a.m.

A rancorous Senate debate on the fate of President Dilma Rousseff has dragged into a new day Thursday, with her critics arguing that she caused deep damage to Latin America's largest nation while supporters are calling the effort to impeach her a coup d'etat.

The Senate's march toward a historic vote on impeaching Rousseff began Wednesday morning. The debate droned on through the day and into the wee hours of Thursday, with the vote possibly coming sometime around dawn.

Senate President Renan Calheiros said at one point: "I'm asking for everybody's patience because we need to see this through to the end."
