Today 3 October voters in Brazil will choose their new President in national elections as the very popular Luiz Ignacio Lula da Silva steps down after two terms.

Mrs Dilma Roussef, 62, former guerilla and opponent to the dictatorship is given as the winner and Brazil's first woman President. Roussef was President Lula's Chief of Staff. She is the candidate for the left wing Worker's Party.

The latest polls are giving her a 20% advantage over candidate Jose Serra, the former Mayor of Sao Paulo. He is a centrist, and candidate for the Brazilian Social Democracy Party.

Brazil presidential elections head for second round.

Dilma Rousseff, backed by outgoing President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, failed to secure the 50% of votes needed for an outright victory.

She now enters a 31 October run-off against Social Democratic Party (PSDB) candidate Jose Serra, who won 33%.

Green Party candidate Marina Silva surprised many in the first round by winning 19% of the vote.

The polls were off my a significant margin. They are gonna have to reevaluate how they go about this for October 31.

With that said, I think the real interesting news is the election of an illiterate, professional clown TV star to the legislature. . .

Hilarious.

Brazil is rather interesting.
Two leftwing candidates squaring off not many people would have believed that two decades ago.
Green party candidate surprising follows the international trend of the rise of the greens.

Loosing Lula will still hurt alot. No other Brazilian leader, post 2 world war, has managed to make such an impression on the world or gained such recognition.
The country took great steps under him.

I also prefer Serra to Rousseff though with her getting full support from Lula and from the green candidate I think he has very few chances of winning if none at all.

The Greens haven't announced who they will support yet, but they tend to lean Serra (the voters, the party itself plays the political game). They have scheduled 17 OCT to make the decision, but Marina is playing games right now and whether they will even back a candidate in full is still in question. She is widely quoted as pursuing a neutral position, though that could change.

With all her faults -- and there are a lot -- Dilma Rousseff isn't dumb. If elected, she will take a page from incumbent President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's poltiical playbook -- and she's taken a number of pages already -- and keep current general economic policy place. That policy has allowed Brazil to navigate the global financial crisis fairly well and helped the country become the darling of the developed world as far as investment goes.

Of course, Lula takes the credit for the growth, but it was his predecessor Fernando Henrique Cardoso who made it all possible.
