Brazil's presidential election on Sunday appeared to be heading for an Oct. 30 run-off, as far-right President Jair Bolsonaro's strong initial showing seemed to have ended leftist Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's hopes of a first-round victory. With 70% of electronic voting machines counted, Lula was slightly ahead with 45.7% of votes versus 45.5% for Bolsonaro, the national electoral authority said on its website. A narrow first-round vote would also deliver a major boost to Bolsonaro, who was seen trailing Lula by 10-15 percentage points in most polls ahead of Sunday's vote.
