Scared of the `ghosts’ haunting the presidential house, Brazil’s acting president Michel Temer has reportedly vacated it and moved to the vice-presidential house.
The 76-year-old Michel Temer took over as the acting president after President Dilma Rousseff was impeached last year.
He has been quoted as saying in a magazine interview that he and his wife have vacated the Alvorada Palace because they feared it is haunted.
“I felt something strange there. I wasn’t able to sleep right from the first night. The energy wasn’t good,” he told the newsweekly Veja in an interview.
“We even started to wonder: could there be ghosts?” he said.
The acting president said his wife Marcela Temer was also scared. He said only his seven-year-old son Michelzinho liked the palace.
“Marcela felt the same thing. Only Michelzinho, who went running from one end to the other, liked it,” the acting president of Brazil said.
The acting president also brought a priest to remove the evil spirits from his official residence, but it didn’t work.
The Alvorada Palace opened in 1958.
