On the verge of the October 31 runoff presidential vote in neighbouring Brazil, ruling party's candidate, Dilma Rousseff, told reporters that President Luiz Inácio "Lula" da Silva could seek to run for presidential office again in 2014.

Thus, Rousseff took part of the rumours indicating that Lula will take four years to recharge energies and come back for a third period, during an exclusive summit for Río de Janeiro's politicians, and according to local newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo.

According to latest opinnion polls, Lula enjoys a high-record 82 percent approval. The current president is the number one backer of Rousseff, who will face former Sao Paulo governor José Serra of the Social Democratic party on next Sunday's vote

Roussef's remarks were quite shocking, mostly after some comments Lula made to the press indicating that he would definitely support a second candidacy of his former chief of staff in 2014, and that by that time he would be 68 and he would surely feel the weight of the years upon his shoulders.
