Brazil's Silva Launches Bid, Threatens Rousseff Re-election

by Wochit 0:45 mins

Environmentalist Marina Silva officially launched a bid for president on Wednesday, upending Brazil's October elections and threatening the ruling Workers' Party's 12-year hold on power. Silva, until now a vice-presidential candidate for the Brazilian Socialist Party, accepted its nomination to top the ticket after candidate Eduardo Campos, a former governor and rising political star, was killed in a plane crash last week. Viewed as an outsider with no links to traditional elites, Silva is a former environment minister whose ironclad environmental and religious beliefs prompt critics to call her inflexible but supporters to praise her as Brazil's most principled politician.
