Carlos Nuzman, the chairman of Brazil's Olympics Committee (BOC) has announced his resignation on 11 October, Wednesday.
Nuzman was arrested on 5 October, Thursday.
He was accused of a two million USA dollar vote-rigging scandal to get the majority from International Olympic Committee (IOC) for the selection of Rio de Janeiro as the host of 2016 Olympics Games.
Speaking after meeting with the BOC's membership, Wanderley described Nuzman's resignation as "a relief".

But Uniqlo operator Fast Retailing fell 0.68 percent to 34,850 yen ahead of its latest earnings report. Toyota still rose 1.49 percent to 6,992 yen though Nissan fell 0.41 percent to 1,087 yen.
At the time, Nuzman was detained and questioned and authorities confiscated his passport. The COB was suspended because it was responsible for Rio's bid to stage the Games, the International Olympic Committee said last Friday.
Nuzman asked for a leave of absence as head of the Brazilian Olympic Committee on Saturday to work on his defense.
Carlos Arthur Nuzman, 75, had said last weekend that he was temporarily stepping down.
Authorities allege that former Rio governor Sergio Cabral, who is serving a 14-year prison term for bribery and money laundering, masterminded the plot. Papa Massata Diack, the son of Senegalese IOC member, and former world athletics chief Lamine Diack might have received the payment three days before the selection by the contractor Soares.
