Brazil: Dilma Roussef’s victory visualized
Summing up with interactive visualizations the most dramatic Election in Brazil’s history
Last Sunday (26), one of the most – if not the most – dramatic Presidential races in the history of Brazil’s democracy came to an end, with President Dilma Rousseff Rousseff being re-elected by a narrow margin (51.6% to Aécio Neves’ 48.4%).
For obvious reasons – we have a base in Brazil, in case some of you don’t know -, we are always on the lookout for what is happening in this country, and this has been a very intense year, with the World Cup earlier in July. The election itself it’s not a new topic for us, since we showed you a first selection of interactive visualizations when the first turn of the election was over, less than a month ago. Back then, Rousseff won 41.6% of the vote, ahead of Neves with 33.6% and the third candidate, Marina Silva with 21.3%.
So, lets take a look at some of the online works that caught out attention in this last few weeks, starting with a visual coverage that really standouts from the rest, courtesy of the talented team at Estado de S. Paulo newspaper.
