By Agencies in Brasilia | China Daily | Updated: 2016-08-30 07:36

Suspended President Dilma Rousseff was scheduled to make a last stand in Brazil's Senate on Monday in an impeachment trial that is widely expected to remove her from office and end more than a decade of rule by her Workers Party.

Rousseff, who is being impeached on charges of breaking budget laws, has denied any wrongdoing and denounced the nine-month impeachment process as a conspiracy to overthrow her and roll back policies that have favored Brazil's poor during 13 years of Workers Party governments.

About 250 supporters of Rousseff rallied on Sunday in Brasilia as she prepared for her dramatic last stand at an impeachment trial expected to see her fired within days.
