Brazilian voters have elected their first female President, Dilma Rousseff, who ran for national office for the first time in this campaign.
A detailed profile of Rouseff by the Canadian Broadcasting System (CBC) states that her story is “intertwined with the last half-century of Brazil’s history. She is the daughter of an immigrant, and has been a guerrilla, a torture victim, an economist, an energy minister and the president’s chief of staff.”
Rousseff, 62, will succeed President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who was barred by Brazil’s constitution from seeking a third consective term. She has said she will “work to lift millions of people out of poverty” while in office, declaring, “We cannot rest while Brazilians are going hungry.”
She’ll be sworn in on January 1, 2011.
