On Oct. 3 Brazilians will vote in the general election to replace current President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. With a commanding lead in the polls and a potential first-round victory, Dilma Rousseff is being watched for signs of how her government would manage the region's largest economy. If Rousseff wins, what changes do you anticipate for Brazil's energy industry? Would she make big changes in addition to the anticipated pre-salt energy reforms? What sectors within the energy industry would be most affected? What would a Rousseff victory mean for South American energy integration? What would Brazil's energy policy look like under José Serra if the former Säo Paulo governor manages an upset on election day?
