The Brazilian presidential election will have a run-off after votes have been almost all counted. Previous hopeful Marina Silva did not make into the run-off.

Brazilians will have to go to the polls again. 99% of the votes have been counted and Dilma Rousseff has reached the most votes with 42%, but that is not enough. She has to battle Aecio Neves in a run-off on October 26. He reached 34%. Before the election Marina Silva was considered to have a chance at the Presidency. She ended up though only on 3rd place with 21%.

Now the campaigning will continue over the next weeks. It is a tight race. Marina Silva and her party will need to decide which of the candidates they are supporting. 

The Neves's camp has the more enthusiastic tweet celebrating the results.
