Dilma Rousseff turns on her laptop and says, under her breath: "Lord, these people are complicated".

On the laptop screen, Rousseff comes across the fourth, "or fifth, or sixth" version of the letter she plans to deliver to the 81 senators by next Wednesday (10).

Rousseff's comment on the versions of the document is justified: allies from different ideological strains continue to share their opinion on the message.

During a meeting with Rousseff at the Alvorada Palace on Thursday morning (4), Folha gained access to a few excerpts from the "message to the senators and the Brazilian people".

The defense of the plebiscite is the main argument of the speech, perhaps one of the last she will make as president.

"I will give my full support to the initiation of a plebiscite, in order to promote the actualization of new elections and political reform in the country."

"May the people make their needs known, not just through opinion surveys, but by way of a popular vote on new elections and political reform," she said, in an interview with Folha.

The suspended president went on to say: "The presidency is being treated as if it were parliamentarism. Parliamentarism allows for a vote of no confidence. In a presidency, impeachment, without a crime, is a coup".

But is there logic behind, as Michel Temer put it, wanting to return to then leave?, asked Folha.

"Logic? The logic is that he does not have 54.5 million votes. I am legitimate. Nothing, not even impeachment, will make Temer a legitimate president. And that will follow him until the end", she said.
