In Brazil, tens of thousands of people marched nationwide to oppose what they called a "coup" against President Dilma Rousseff.
Peru's Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has pulled off a surprise victory against the opposition's bid to oust him from power for his alleged involvement in Brazil's corruption scandal. The motion to impeach fell eight votes short.
A high-ranking Brazilian senator has told the press that the vote to impeach President Rousseff may take place the day before the Rio Olympics close. Rousseff was suspended from office last month.
With Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff facing impeachment, the atmosphere in the country is tense. Ironically, some of those behind the proceedings are, unlike Rousseff herself, facing criminal charges.
Thousands of people have gathered in the Brazilian capital ahead of an impeachment vote on Sunday. It remains uncertain whether the opposition has the votes necessary to oust President Dilma Rousseff.
