RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Brazilian President Michel Temer was admitted Friday to the Sirio Libanes Hospital in Sao Paulo for exams, after a brief hospital stay on Wednesday.

The president felt sick on Wednesday evening during a Congress session which voted not to pursue corruption charges against him.

He was admitted to a hospital in Brasilia with a urologic obstruction, but left the hospital on the same day.

The Sirio Libanes Hospital released a statement, saying that the president was admitted on Friday evening to "reevaluate and continue the urologic treatment to which he was submitted in Brasilia."

The president will spend the night at the hospital and is expected to be released on Saturday.

It was the second health problem Temer had recently. Earlier in October, the president's doctors detected a partial obstruction in his coronary arteries. He will need to be submitted to a catheterization procedure, which has yet to be scheduled.

At the age of 77, Temer is the oldest person to occupy the Brazilian presidency.
