Brazilians are voting to choose a new president to succeed the popular Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
Opinion polls suggest the governing Workers’ Party candidate Dilma Rousseff has a clear lead over Jose Serra of the opposition Social Democratic Party.
Ms Rousseff has enjoyed the full support of President Lula, who is leaving office after two terms with record popularity ratings.
Public opinion polls have pointed to Dilma Rousseff, shown here in a campaign poster, as the likely winner in Sunday’s runoff election.
