Presidents of Brazil with most impeachment requests 2020

In only 16 months in office, Jair Messias Bolsonaro, president of Brazil, has faced 31 impeachment requests. Considering his relatively short time in government, if the present tendency continues, Bolsonaro is bound to become the Brazilian president with the highest number of impeachment requests. Recent data shows an increasing percentage of Brazilian citizens regret having voted for Bolsonaro in the 2018 elections.

During 67 months as the president of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff faced 68 impeachment requests to be ousted from government, which would amount to an average of more than one petition per month. In the 68th attempt, the Senate found her guilty of administrative misconduct and she was removed from office in August 2016.
