Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's chosen successor has launched her presidential campaign. It began with a march and a rally in Rio de Janeiro's historic city center.
Despite torrential rain, hundreds of people gathered for the event and the march down Rio Branco Avenue. Dilma Rousseff, who was Lula's former chief of staff, officially began her bid for Brazil's highest office alongside Rio de Janeiro Governor Sergio Cabral and former president of the chamber of deputies, Michel Temer. If elected, Rousseff would become Brazil's first female president.
