Today Sunday 25 October 2009, at the Oriental Republic of Uruguay, we have elections, president, vice president and parliament, also taken by vote in referendums two proposals: the vote of Uruguayans abroad, and the law expiration, which would not allow that many who participated in the dictatorship send to trial.
Candidates who have more opportunity are: Jose “Pepe” Mujica, a former Tupamaro that he can be considered by some as a former hijacker, a former murderer, a former bank robberies to raise money for the cause of the Tupamaros, a senator of the republic , a politician looking camper, colloquial speech, presented by the Frente Amplio, political party that supports the power now.
And Luis Alberto Lacalle, the “Kookie” by the White Party, the former president during his term saw the banking crisis, accused of being drunk, to participate in what is the bankruptcy of banks innercia when he was president of the Republic .
In the first round, to be elected president has to obtain 50% plus one of total votes in the event that no party wins that amount of votes, must go to “ballotage”(runoff), runoff would be in November this year.
