Close election race for Uruguay’s president — For years, Daniela Leal saw only one good choice at the ballot box: She voted for the Frente Amplio, the Broad Front, the coalition of Uruguayan leftist parties that prioritized the well-being of families like hers. Ms. Leal, 43, her four children and one grandchild live in a cement-block house with a corrugated tin roof in a slum on the edge of the capital.

Brazilian oil giant Petrobras feels the sting of corruption — When Brazilian police raided the Rio de Janeiro home of Paulo Roberto Costa, a senior bureaucrat, back in March, they found a remarkable cache. He had $380,000 in Brazilian currency, $181,000 in U.S.

Defeated candidate Silva endorses Neves in Brazil’s run-off election — Brazil's strange electoral season turned weirder over the past few days as Marina Silva, the environmentalist and political reformer who finished third in the first round of presidential elections, endorsed the right-wing opposition candidate, Aecio Neves, in the run-off against President Dilma Rousseff.

Globe in Brazil: Rousseff readies for a hard fight in runoff race — Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff faces a fierce fight to hold on to her job over the next three weeks, with early signs that her rival in a second-round vote is rallying a wide "anyone-but-Dilma" caravan of supporters. After a volatile campaign, Ms. Rousseff of the Workers' Party finished first, with 41 per cent of the vote in Sunday's vote.

Globe in Brazil: Rousseff to face Neves in run-off vote — It was a volatile election campaign all the way through, and the results in Brazil's national vote on Sunday stayed true to form. President Dilma Rousseff finished first, but the one-time leading candidate Marina Silva, an outsider environmentalist promising dramatic change, saw her support collapse and finished a distant third.

Brazil heads to polls to decide rollercoaster presidential race — Voting is underway in the most unpredictable election Brazil has seen in at least a generation. More than 142-million voters are casting ballots for members of congress, state governors, a third of senate seats - and for presidential candidates in a fiercely contested race.

Brazilian currency, markets sink on fears of Rousseff's re-election — As Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff began to show a steady lead in polls ahead of Sunday's election, the country's currency sank to its lowest level in six years, and its stock market extended its recent plunge to more than 12 per cent over the past month.

From rebel to president, Brazil’s Rousseff faces tough election battle — Early in her life, Dilma Rousseff paid a high price for her political convictions. Arrested by Brazil's military dictatorship while working for the leftist underground in 1970, she was brutally tortured in an effort to make her give up information on her comrades. She didn't crack.

Brazil’s election: What you need to know — Sunday's election has Brazil at a crossroads: After 12 years of rule by the Workers' Party in which the economy surged, millions of people saw their standard of living rise dramatically and the country enjoyed a new sense of prestige internationally, there is now a strong feeling the good times have ground to a halt.

Female refugees live between freedom and fear — The women are frightened. They are furious. They are hot and filthy, hungry and sick with worry for their children. And underneath all that, there is another emotion, one they cannot acknowledge, can barely permit themselves to feel. They are just the smallest bit gleeful.
