Leading up to the final polls on Sunday, October 26th, the 2014 Brazil presidential election still does not have a clear favorite. Current polls place Dilma Rousseff (PT) with 47% of valid voter intentions, while her opponent, Aecio Neves (PSDB) holds 43%. Paulo Sotero, Director of the Brazil Institute, says, “This election has been marked by unusual political vulnerability… It’s been the most unpredictable election since the return of democratic elections in 1989 and will remain unpredictable until the end.”
This Sunday, Brazilians will decide the future of their nation. Stay tuned for updates and commentary.
