Michel Miguel Elias Temer Lulia (born September 23, 1940), better known as Michel Temer, is a Brazilian lawyer and politician, and currently the Vice-President of Brazil after winning on the ticket of Workers' Party candidate Dilma Rousseff. He is also the President of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party, although he is currently suspended from that office to comply with Brazilian Law and to carry out his duties as Vice-President.

He previously served for six consecutive terms as Federal Deputy for the state of São Paulo in the Chamber of Deputies, and on three separate occasions served two-year terms as President of the Chamber (in 1997-1998, 1999-2000 and 2009-2010). Temer was also a member of the 1988 National Constituent Assembly, which promulgated the current Constitution of Brazil.
