Brazil's Temer seeks constitutional change to curb public spending | Reuters

BRASILIA Brazil's interim President Michel Temer said on Tuesday he would seek constitutional change to limit increases in public spending as part of a series of measures to curb a record fiscal deficit and regain investor confidence. Temer, a centrist who took over from leftist President Dilma Rousseff two weeks ago after she was suspended pending trial, said the amendment would restrict growth in state spending to the previous year's inflation rate, excluding debt payments. Constitutional change requires 60 percent support in both chambers of Congress at a time of bitter divisions following Rousseff's suspension on charges of breaking budget rules. #United States #Economy #Business #Brazil #Middle East #United Kingdom #article

Turk opposition party to hold congress in possible setback for Erdogan | Reuters

ANKARA Turkey's nationalist opposition said on Tuesday it would hold an extraordinary congress aimed at resolving a leadership dispute, a move that could dash President Tayyip Erdogan's ambitions of winning greater powers. Opinion polls suggest the removal of Devlet Bahceli as leader of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) could lead to a surge in support for his party, weakening Erdogan's chances of securing strong parliamentary support for the introduction of a full presidential system in Turkey #Politics #Economy #science #Europe #Turkey

Investigators struggling to work out why the Airbus 320 jet vanished from radar screens last Thursday, with 66 passengers and crew on board, are looking for clues in the human remains and debris recovered from the Mediterranean Sea so far. #Economy #India #Egypt #Entertainment #Foreign policy #article
