Obama appointed Jia Lande as Supreme Court Justice

President Obama has nominated a moderate judge Merrick Garland to the vacancy to the US Supreme Court, setting up a showdown with Republicans.

The appointment has to be ratified by the senate but its Republican majority has vowed to block any court nominee from Mr Obama. Barbara Plett-Usher has more from Washington.

President Obama chose justice Garland as the best option for a consensus candidate somebody who is a liberal but not a hard-down-the-line liberal, more of a centrist candidate in many ways.

Somebody who has been supported by both Republicans and Democrats in the past and who has a reputation for decency and fair-mindedness.

The Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff has defended the appointment of her predecessor Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva as chief of staff.
