Brazil's opposition calls for Rousseff probe in Petrobras scandal

Brazil's opposition calls for Rousseff probe in Petrobras scandal

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil's main opposition party said on Tuesday it would call on the Supreme Court to investigate President Dilma Rousseff's involvement in a corruption scheme at state-run oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro SA ( PETR4.SA ). The motion comes a day after prosecutors charged the treasurer of Rousseff's Workers' Party, Joao Vaccari, with corruption and money laundering, saying that Vaccari was aware that donations he sought for the party were bribe money stolen from Petrobras. Rousseff has denied knowing about corruption at Petrobras as chairwoman of its board from 2003 to 2010 when much of the alleged graft occurred and has urged a thorough investigation. #Business #United States #Brazil #Technology #Capital punishment #markets #Iran #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Mexico

UK's Osborne readies final budget before knife-edge election

LONDON (Reuters) - British finance minister George Osborne will try to make voters feel that the economy's recovery is finally working for them when he delivers an annual budget on Wednesday, seven weeks before a national election that remains too close to call. Five years into his austerity plan to fix Britain's public finances, Osborne has said he will not indulge in pre-election gimmicks and will instead stick to tough spending cuts if his boss, Prime Minister David Cameron is re-elected on May 7. But with his Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party deadlocked in opinion polls, Osborne is under pressure to ease the squeeze on households whose earnings remain below their level at the 2010 election, when adjusted for inflation. #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #Capital punishment #markets #Argentina #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion

Netanyahu claims victory in Israel election after hard right shift

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed victory in Israel's election on Tuesday after exit polls showed he had erased his centre-left rivals' lead with a hard rightward shift that saw him disavow a commitment to negotiate a Palestinian state. Difficult coalition talks still lie ahead. Isaac Herzog, Netanyahu's chief opponent and head of the centre-left Zionist Union, said "everything is still open" and that he had already spoken to party leaders about forming a government. #Business #United States #India #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Capital punishment #markets #Mexico #author #opinion

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Exit polls by Israel's leading television channels showed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party drew even with Isaac Herzog's Zionist Union in the election on Tuesday, making the formation of the next government a serious challenge for both candidates.
