BRASILIA (Reuters) - The leader of Brazil's ruling coalition in the Senate, Romero Jucá, said on Tuesday that he expects labour reform to be voted next week, following review by a committee on Wednesday.

Asked about corruption charges brought against President Michel Temer by the prosecutor-general Rodrigo Janot on Monday, Jucá said he will only comment once the prosecutor sends all charges against the president to the Supreme Court.
