Uruguay vote headed for runoff

Uruguayan votes cast their ballots at a polling station in Montevideo, on October 26, 2014Uruguay’s leftist former president Tabare Vazquez and his center-right rival Luis Lacalle Pou are headed into a November 30 runoff after a presidential vote failed to deliver an outright winner. President Jose Mujica will be succeeded either by his Broad Front ally Vazquez, who earned 47.8 percent of the vote, or the National Party’s Lacalle Pou, who garnered 31.1 percent, election officials said Monday after a manual count of 97.8 percent of ballot boxes. After preliminary results were announced, thousands of Broad Front supporters nonetheless filled July 18 Avenue, the main street in downtown Montevideo, honking horns and waving flags.
