BRASILIA (Reuters) - The main allied party of embattled Brazilian President Michel Temer has not yet decided whether to leave the government's coalition, the party's interim head, Senator Tasso Jereissati, said on Wednesday.

The country's third largest party, the PSDB, is divided on whether to remain in Temer's coalition after allegations of corruption against him have roiled his administration.
