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

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

Netanyahu and centre-left opposition tied in exit polls - TV

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. Channel 10 and Channel 1 said Likud and the Zionist Union had secured 27 seats each in the 120-member Knesset, while Channel 2 said that Netanyahu had eked out a narrow victory, winning 28 seats to 27 for Herzog #India #France #Israel #Capital punishment #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

French parliament passes "deep sleep" bill for end of life

PARIS (Reuters) - France's lower house of parliament passed a bill on Tuesday allowing patients near the end of their lives to stop medical treatment and request deep sedation until they die, a move that critics say is effectively a form of euthanasia. The draft law, which polls show is backed by most French, passed in the lower house of parliament with 436 members voting in favour and 34 voting against. It is expected to get the final approval from the upper house in May or June. #Japan #Technology #France #Capital punishment #markets #Iran #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

Egyptian policeman charged over protest shooting captured on film

CAIRO (Reuters) - An Egyptian police officer was charged on Tuesday over the shooting of a young mother at a protest in central Cairo, weeks after a photograph of her bleeding to death went viral and caused an international outcry. Shaimaa Sabbagh, 32, was shot in January at a march marking the anniversary of the uprising that ousted veteran ruler Hosni Mubarak in 2011. The public prosecutor said in a statement she was killed by an officer who fired birdshot to try to disperse the protest. #Business #facebook #United States #India #Arabic #Russia #Capital punishment #Iran #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Mexico #author

British PM Cameron, broadcasters agree to pre-election TV debate

British PM Cameron, broadcasters agree to pre-election TV debate

LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Tuesday he had agreed with broadcasters to join a seven-way televised debate with other political leaders ahead of the May 7 election. Months of bitter wrangling culminated earlier this month in Cameron being labelled a coward by rivals after he issued an ultimatum on the format of the debates and ruled out a head-to-head debate with opposition leader Ed Miliband. Cameron's reluctance to take part in multiple debates, including a head-to-head, had been widely interpreted as an effort to protect his own high personal ratings while depriving his rivals of publicity before what is shaping up as a closely fought and unpredictable election #facebook #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Capital punishment #markets #Iran #Argentina #United Kingdom #Entertainment #opinion
