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
