  • Description

    THE BRAZILIAN CONGRESS IS EXPECTED TO DECIDE ON AN INTERIM PRESIDENT BY THIS WEEKEND. CONGRESS IS UNDER PRESSURE FROM THE MILITARY AND FROM SEVERAL STATE GOVERNORS TO SPEED THE PROCESS OF SUCCESSION TO THE FORMER PRESIDENT JOAO GOULART, DEPOSED IN LAST WEEK'S COUP.

    THE MILITARY MADE ITS PRESENCE FELT IN THE CAPITAL, BRASILIA, AS CONGRESS BEGAN ITS DEBATE. MANY MORE TROOPS WERE ABOUT THE CITY THAN ARE NORMALLY STATIONED THERE. THEY WERE CONSPICUOUSLY ON GUARD AT GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS INCLUDING THOSE IN WHICH THE SENATE AND CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES WERE MEETING. THERE IS LITTLE DOUBT IN THE CAPITAL THAT THE CHOICE WILL FALL ON GENERAL CASTEL BLANCO TO SERVE OUT THE REMAINING 21 MONTHS OF THE PRESIDENCY.

    MEANWHILE, A PANEL OF OFFICERS FROM THE ARMY, NAVY AND AIR FORCE HAS STARTED AN INVESTIGATION OF COMMUNIST INFILTRATION IN CONGRESS AND IN GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.
