World - Brazil poll rivals close campaigns for hard-fought vote

Brazil`s leftist President Dilma Rousseff and center-right challenger Aecio Neves wrapped up their campaigns Saturday in the hardest-fought election in the country`s recent history. Rousseff, 66, a former guerrilla who was jailed and tortured for fighting Brazil`s 1964-1985 dictatorship, spent Saturday morning in her southern stronghold of Porto Alegre, where she was holding a march. Neves, the business-world favorite, was meanwhile in his native state of Minas Gerais in the southeast to pay a visit to the grave of his grandfather Tancredo, a leading figure in the democratic transition who was elected president in 1985 but died before taking office. Rousseff, who was elected Brazil`s first woman president in 2010, taking the reins from her popular Workers` Party (PT) mentor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, has had to fight tooth and nail to re-emerge as the front-runner.

Rousseff enjoyed an eight-percent advantage over Social Democrat Aecio Neves in the first round of voting on October 5 and the latest polls have her holding the advantage. `Brazilians will give their response to Veja magazine and its accomplices at the polls -- and I shall give mine to the law,` she said, indicating she plans to sue the publication.
