Brazil gears up for first round of presidential elections

From Sunday Morning, 7:44 am on 5 October 2014

Brazilians are heading to the polls this weekend. Incumbent President Dilma Rousseff may well end up getting a second term, but Socialist Party candidate Marina Silva, is in a statistical tie with Ms. Rousseff. Brazil has a population 200 million, and is the largest country in South America and is the world's fifth largest country. In the 2000's the Brazilian economy was booming- indeed an emerging Global Power.
