Just goes to show that even a cop killer can get to the top these days. What? They didn’t tell you that when he used to go under the pseudonym ‘Emiliano’ in his more militant days he shot dead a police officer by putting seven bullets in his back?
Strange how these things get forgotten, isn’t it?
UPDATE: Tough to call accurately, but it looks most likely that there will be a 2nd round run off in November. Mujica is polling slightly under the 50% he needs to seal it at this stage. Rightwing Luis Lacalle will face off with him and is currently polling 305 or so.
