Brazil stocks tumble on Dilma Rousseff re-election — A sharp drop in Brazil's financial markets signalled investors are unsure whether the newly re-elected President Dilma Rousseff will take the necessary steps to reinvigorate the country's stalled economy. Bovespa fell 6 per cent in the opening minutes of trading and finished the day down about 2.8 per cent.

Globe in Brazil: Dilma Rousseff narrowly wins second term as president — Brazil has re-elected president Dilma Rousseff on a razor-thin margin of 50.99 per cent of votes with 95 per cent of votes counted over centre-right challenger Aecio Neves in one of the narrowest and most dramatic elections Brazil has seen since the return to democracy.

Brazilians head to polls in divisive presidential run-off — Voting is underway in the most uncertain and divisive election Brazil has faced in at least a generation. A flurry of last minute polls, released on the eve of Sunday's run-off vote for president, offered something for both sides: some showed incumbent President Dilma Rousseff with a slight lead, while others showed her in a statistical tie with Aecio Neves, who just a month ago looked like an also-ran with no serious chance.

Brazil voters take a second look at poll leader Aecio Neves — Back in June, a Brazilian reporter asked Aecio Neves how he would feel if he were elected this country's next president. It was something of a hypothetical question five months ago, since polls showed that President Dilma Rousseff had a massive lead over Mr. Neves in her bid for re-election.

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.
