Spliced Lula video annoys ruling party in Brazil election

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's ruling party has asked Google Inc to pull a spliced campaign video from YouTube that gives viewers the impression its leader, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, is backing opposition presidential candidate Marina Silva. Silva, a popular environmentalist, has surged in the polls and is threatening to defeat President Dilma Rousseff in the October elections, unseating Lula's Worker's Party after 12 years in power. In the video, a cheerful Lula backs the election of "Marina." But the candidate he is referring to is Marina Santana, who is seeking a Senate seat for the state of Gois. #Business #Japan #Brazil #France #Middle East #Argentina #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion

Indonesia's rice-for-poor scheme to test new president

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's powerful anti-graft agency will launch a probe into the nation's subsidised rice scheme unless major flaws are fixed, threatening moves to expand the role of the state food buying agency into other staples such as corn, beef and sugar. With nearly a third of the rice estimated to go missing and allegations of some rotting before it gets to poor families, the future of the scheme and the wider issue of food security will be an early policy test for president-elect Joko Widodo. Widodo has promised cleaner, more efficient government when he takes office in October and along with fixing dysfunctional state bodies also faces tough economic decisions such as whether to rein in fuel subsidies that have blown out the budget #facebook #India #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #Entertainment
