SÃ O PAULO—The acting president of Brazil’s reduce house reversed on Tuesday his choice to annul the impeachment approach against President Dilma Rousseff, which is now most likely to take place later this week as previously anticipated.

In the April 17 vote, the Chamber of Deputies supported impeachment by 367 to 137.
The Senate is scheduled to commence voting on Wednesday on no matter whether to put Ms. Rousseff on trial. If the Senate votes to do so, she would be suspended from workplace for up to 180 days even though the proceedings go forward.
