Continuing Latin America's 'Left Turn,' Brazil's Rousseff Wins Re-Election

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff was re-elected in a narrow victory on Sunday.

Beating opponent Aecio Neves of the Social Democrat party by a slim 51.6 percent to 48.3 percent, Rousseff's win continues a dozen years of rule by the Workers Party.

Speaking to supporters in Brasilia following the election results, Rousseff said, "I want to be a much better president than I have been up to now."
