Rousseff narrow favorite as Brazilians turn out to vote

Social Democrat presidential candidate Aecio Neves speaks after voting in the run-off election in Belo Holizonte, Brazil, on October 26, 2014Brazilians voted Sunday for the next leader of the world’s seventh-largest economy, with opinion polls narrowly favoring President Dilma Rousseff after a topsy-turvy and bitter campaign. Some 143 million people are choosing between leftist incumbent Rousseff and Social Democrat Aecio Neves, scion of a famous political family. Polls gave Rousseff between a four- and six-percent lead, though the election remained too close to call. “We are voting for a more equal Brazil with more opportunities,” said Rousseff, the country’s first woman president, as she cast her vote in the southern city of Porto Alegre, sipping on a cup of local mate tea.
