Official Count in Uruguay Confirms Vazquez and Lacalle in 2nd Round Run-Off

MONTEVIDEO – Initial data from the official count of the Uruguayan general elections released by the electoral court have confirmed a run-off between Tabare Vazquez and Luis Alberto Lacalle Pou in a second round.

A count of 18.1 percent of the votes in Sunday’s elections, equivalent to 394,077 ballots, showed Vazquez, candidate of the Broad Front party, leading with 162,086 votes and Lacalle, of the National Party, with 139,449 votes, well ahead of the third candidate, Pedro Bordaberry, of the Colorado Party, who managed 57,398.

Exit polls had also indicated a face-off between former president Vazquez and Lacalle in the second round, having garnered 41-46 percent and 31-34 percent of the votes respectively.

According to these results, the Broad Front would lose its majority in the Congress and the Senate and would have to count on support from allies in the Parliament in order to push forward legislative initiatives.

According to the vote count, the Independent Party got 9,467 votes, the People’s Assembly 3,252, the Worker’s Party 456 and the Ecologist Radical Intransigent Party 1,258 votes.

Some 7,146 voters cast blank votes and 4,749 of the votes were annulled.

The complete results of the first round of counting are expected to be released sometime on Monday.
