Faced with an economic downturn and corruption at a state oil company, Brazilians have the right to be angry, their president said Monday, but not to rerun the election that returned her to power in October.

President Dilma Rousseff made the remarks in response to calls for her impeachment and widespread protests during a televised address the night before, the NPR correspondent Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reported.

Ms. Rousseff spoke on Monday at the presidential palace in Brasília, where she signed a new law designating the gender-related killing of a woman or girl a “femicide.”

Despite the president’s comments, her opponents seem determined to drive her from office through protests, perhaps inspired by the success of similar efforts to oust the elected leaders of Egypt and Ukraine in the past two years.

As the president’s speech was broadcast on Sunday night, Folha de S.Paulo noted, drivers honked their horns in cities across Brazil and “residents banged on pots and cursed the president while flashing their apartment lights.”
