WCUP-ROUSSEFF ABSENT
Report: Brazilian President Rousseff will skip FIFA Congress

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 9, 2014 7:44 PM EDT
SAO PAULO


Brazil President Dilma Rousseff will not attend Tuesday's formal opening of the FIFA Congress, a meeting of the world football body's 209 members, the Sao Paulo newspaper O Estado de Sao Paulo reported Monday.

The head of state or head of government traditionally addresses the meeting.

The newspaper cited unnamed sources at the presidential palaces.

FIFA has criticized Brazil over the last few years for delays in building World Cup stadiums and related road and airport projects.

Rousseff is running for re-election in October, and lavish spending on the World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympics is unpopular with many in the country. Many Brazilians resent FIFA for making financial demands, though it pays few taxes in the country.
