Brazilians vote Sunday in the first elections since the impeachment of former president Dilma Rousseff -- and her leftist Workers Party (PT) is expected to suffer a major setback.The nationwide election of mayors and city councils in 5,568 municipalities across Brazil will be a test of support for the country's political parties in the midst of its worst corruption scandal and deepest recession since the 1930s.Centrist parties allied to Brazil's President Michel Temer, who succeeded Rousseff in August, are expected to do well. Victory, particularly in Brazil's largest cities, would boost the parties as they prepare for the 2018 presidential race.Temer's Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB) is expected to expand its number of mayors.
