The climb to the top can be tough going for anyone.
There are particular hurdles that can make the journey upward toward positions of power and influence.Whether we're forging our own paths or following in the footsteps of those who've gone ahead, these trailblazers, innovators, explorers and disrupters can encourage, motivate and push us to reach new heights in business and in life.Millions of people take to the streets to demand the impeachment of the first woman to be elected president in the country’s history. Protesters condemn corruption scandals involving the largest national companies. The leading party loses support, and has its structure shaken. The impeachment process, the second in the country’s young democracy, casts shadows over the president’s political mentor, who is considered by a large segment of society to be one of the greatest leaders the country has ever had.The late arrival of a woman to the presidency of their countries is not accidental. South Korea and Brazil fare poorly in the world rankings for women’s representation in national parliaments. According to the Parliamentary Union, an intergovernamental organization dedicated to monitoring legislative branches and spurring cooperation between them.
But sweeping corruption scandals, the worst economic crisis in decades and the government’s tone-deaf responses to the souring national mood opened Ms. Rousseff to withering scorn, leaving her with little support to fend off a power grab by her political rivals.
For the past three years, Brazil has been gripped by a scandal which started with a state-owned oil company and grew to encapsulate people at the very top of business - and even presidents.On the face of it, it is a straightforward corruption scandal - albeit one involving millions of dollars in kickbacks and more than 80 politicians and members of the business elite.
Rousseff took over as the first female president of Brazil in January 2011. During the first two years in office, her left-leaning government received the blessings of Brazil’s middle and upper classes, but in 2013 the boat started to sink. Corruption scandals involving Petrobras Brazil’s state-run oil company and the infrastructural arrangements for FIFA World Cup the football tournament hosted by Brazil in July 2014 – invaded the headlines, even as the economy kept shrinking at an accelerated pace. Although Rousseff was reelected in October 2014 by popular vote for a second presidential term, her victory was promptly contested by PSDB, the main opposition party to Rousseff’s PT-led coalition. From the day after her reelection until August 31, 2016, the date when the Brazilian senate made the decision to oust the president, Rousseff never enjoyed a single moment of truce. She also dealt with every sort of sexist insult before leaving the president’s palace. The Senate impeached Dilma Rousseff, Brazil’s first female president, and removed her from office for the rest of her term, the capstone of a power struggle that has consumed the nation for months and toppled one of the hemisphere’s most powerful political parties.The Senate voted 61 to 20 to convict Ms. Rousseff on charges of manipulating the federal budget in an effort to conceal the
nation’s mounting economic problems.But the final removal of Ms. Rousseff, who was suspended in May to face trial, was much more than a judgment of guilt on any charge. It was a verdict on her leadership and the slipping fortunes of Latin America’s largest country.The impeachment puts a definitive end to 13 years of governing by the leftist Workers’ Party, an era during which Brazil’s economy boomed, lifting millions into the middle class and raising the country’s profile on the global stage.
In a historic, unanimous ruling, South Korea's Constitutional Court formally removed impeached President Park Geun-hye from office over a corruption scandal that has plunged the country into political turmoil and worsened an already-serious national divide.
Park Geun-hye: South Korea's former president jailed over corruption allegations.South Korea's disgraced former president Park Geun-hye the country's first democratically elected leader to be thrown out of office has been arrested over high-profile corruption allegations of bribery and abuse of power.Key points.Ms Park has been taken to a detention facility and faces over 10 years in prison.Her ousting leaves behind a political vacuum amid rising tensions with North Korea.The scandal has also landed the head of the Samsung Group in detention and on trial.A convoy of vehicles, including a black sedan carrying Ms Park, entered a detention facility near Seoul after the Seoul Central District Court granted prosecutors' request to arrest her.Ms Park's removal from office capped months of paralysis and turmoil over the corruption scandal that also landed the head of the Samsung conglomerate in detention and on trial.Her impeachment this month has left a political vacuum, with only an interim president pending a May 9 election, at a time of rising tensions with North Korea over its weapons program and with China, which is angry over South Korea's decision to host a US anti-missile system.Prosecutors said that Ms Park was accused of soliciting companies for money and infringing upon the freedom of corporate management by using her power as the president.In South Korea, Park was sworn in as president in February 2013, also the first female ever to reach such position in her country. After a quick electoral honeymoon with South Korean citizens, this relationship soured after Park’s handling of a literal boat sinking: the Sewol ferry tragedy in 2014.
Thailand’s supreme court has found the former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra guilty of negligence and sentenced her to five years in prison, a verdict delivered in absentia a month after she fled the country.
Yingluck Shinawatra, the Thai prime minister who was ousted in a coup in 2014, had gathered in Bangkok on August 25th. Threats of arrest and thousands of police had failed to keep them from the Supreme Court as they waited patiently on pavements and plastic chairs. They had been expecting the verdict to be announced in a case against Ms Yingluck for incompetence in a rice-subsidy scheme which cost the government around $16bn. They had also hoped to catch a glimpse of their champion.
The timing and exact route of her escape remains unconfirmed, although party sources said she and her son travelled overland to Cambodia, flew to Singapore and on to Dubai."Ms Yingluck is in Dubai with Mr Thaksin and will seek asylum in England," said a source inside the Pheu Thai party.Thailand's first female prime minister faces up to 10 years in jail if found guilty.In a separate case linked to the same rice subsidy policy, Ms Yingluck's former commerce minister was sentenced on Friday to 42 years in jail for corruption
