Top Brazilian musicians join call for a new president

Meirelles told journalists at an event hosted by Exame magazine in Sao Paulo that he is not even considering becoming the caretaker president should Temer be ousted, despite the minister's name being floated as a possible fill-in. It added that the change in justice ministers "brings concerns and uncertainty over the possibility of interference in the work performed by the federal police".

The latest move by the Temer Administration is seen by analysts as an attempt by the President to steer attention away from the latest political embroil faced by his administration.

A Brazilian Supreme Court Justice on Tuesday authorized the federal police to interrogate President Michel Temer in writing over the Petrobras corruption scandal.

"The reform agenda belongs to the country, not to a president", José Berenguer, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co's Brazilian unit, said at the same conference.

Last week, recordings surfaced of Temer appearing to condone bribing a former lawmaker so the latter, who had been arrested for several counts of corruption and threatened to disclose corruption schemes in the government, would keep silent before federal investigators.

"Out with Temer" and "Direct elections now" were among the most popular slogans as demonstrators began to gather at Rio's Copacabana Beach around 11:00 a.m. local time, Brazil's O Globo reported.

Scandal-plagued Brazilian President Michel Temer on Sunday named a new justice minister, placing a respected legal figure in the position as the leader defends himself against corruption allegations.

Temer reportedly replaced Serraglio because he is a target of ongoing investigations related to bribes covering up the sale of bad meat.

Since March, Mr Jardim was the nation's transparency minister, a portfolio created by Mr Temer.

Supreme Court Justice Gilmar Mendes, who serves as chairman of the seven-judge electoral court, said Monday that it's not up to the judges to resolve Brazil's political crisis. The justice also said it wouldn't be surprising if one of the members of the court chose to review the case, which would stop the sessions for an undefined amount of time.

They also want new direct presidential elections if Temer resigns or is forced out.
