BRASILIA (Reuters) - The refusal of a party within Brazilian President Michel Temer's coalition in Congress to support his unpopular pension reform will not imperil the approval of the proposal, Planning Minister Dyogo Oliveira said on Tuesday.

The Brazilian Socialist Party (PSB) called on its lawmakers to vote against the pension reform, which limits costly retirement benefits in order to tame surging public debt.
