After the closest Brazilian election in generations, president Dilma Rousseff was re-elected by a narrow margin on Sunday, ensuring that Latin America’s biggest nation will remain under the control of a Workers party (PT) committed to tackling inequality.
Rousseff won 51.6% of the valid votes cast to secure a much reduced mandate, having fought off a strong challenge by pro-business challenger Aécio Neves.
In a victory speech, a beaming Rousseff said she hoped the nation could rally together. “Instead of increasing differences and creating gaps, I strongly hope that we create the conditions to unite,” she told supporters in Brasilia. “I want to be a much better president than I have been until now.”
