BUENOS AIRES, October 27 / TASS / Uruguay’s presidential election heads to a second round vote set for November 30, as three different exit polls shown on Sunday.

According to the results, 74-year-old Tabaré Vázquez, the ruling left-leaning Broad Front coalition candidate, former President of Uruguay from 2005 to 2010, received 44-46% of the vote. His main opponent, 41-year-old Luis Alberto Lacalle Pou from the right-wing National Party (‘Blanco’), the son of a former president, took 32-33% of the vote.

It is hard to predict the results of the runoff at the moment, as it is impossible to say who people will grant their favor to. However, according to some forecasts, the right-wing party candidate Lacalle Pou has the advantage over his rival and can get 47% of vote in the second round. The left-leaning candidate Tabaré Vázquez can expect to be supported by 46% of electors.
