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

West African states call for end to border closures over Ebola

ACCRA (Reuters) - West African states should re-open their borders and end flight bans put in place to halt the spread of Ebola, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) said on Thursday. The ECOWAS countries and airlines will make their own decisions on flight bans and borders, but the view of the main regional body, expressed at a meeting of ECOWAS health ministers in Ghana's capital, is likely to prove influential. "We must implement containment measures but we must not implement measures that will isolate or ostracise the affected countries," Ghana President John Mahama, who is also ECOWAS's current chairman, told the meeting. #China #Business #Japan #Technology #France #Russia #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom
