BRASÍLIA, Dec 20 Brazil lawmakers opposed to a
bill changing telecommunications regulations asked the Supreme
Court on Tuesday to rule that the measure must be voted on by
the full Senate.
Speaking minutes before filing the request at the Supreme
Court, a lawyer for opposition lawmakers, who asked not to be
identified as he was not allowed to speak publicly on the
matter, told Reuters the move was designed to stop the bill from
being signed into law by President Michel Temer without a vote
by the full Senate.
