Brazil: Former President Dilma Rousseff votes in general election

Former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff (PT) cast her vote in the general election in her hometown of Belo Horizonte on Sunday. Rousseff warned against the dangers represented by the far-right presidential front-runner Jair Balsonaro, saying that «today's agenda is whether we will follow the democratic path, or the fascist, authoritarian path.» According to the latest polling, Bolsonaro is... Еще projected to win 40 percent of the vote on Sunday, with the candidate for the left-wing Workers' Party, Fernando Haddad, in second place with 25 percent. In the likely event that no candidate wins an outright majority in the first round of voting, a runoff poll between the two top candidates is scheduled for October 28. Rousseff succeeded President Lula da Silva in 2011 but was impeached due to allegations of corruption in August 2016. She is running as a candidate for a senate seat representing Brazil's second most populous state, Minas Gerais.
