DescriptionThe largest party in Brazil's governing coalition, the PMDB, has voted to pull out.

The centrist party called for an "immediate exit" from President Dilma Rousseff's government.

The move could hasten impeachment proceedings against President Rousseff, correspondents say.

Opposition lawmakers want to remove Ms Rousseff over claims that she manipulated accounts to hide a growing deficit.

The decision comes a day after tourism minister Henrique Eduardo Alves from the PMDB - the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party - stood down.
