Press Statement

Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Public Affairs
Washington, DC
November 1, 2010


We congratulate President-elect Dilma Rousseff on her election. We also congratulate the millions of Brazilians who exercised their right to vote in both the first round elections on October 3 and in the October 31 runoff. The exemplary electoral process again illustrates Brazil’s long-standing respect for democratic governance, civil rights, and individual liberties, values that we share in common.

We look forward to working with President-elect Dilma Rousseff to deepen our partnership and advance common goals for the benefit of our two peoples and the Americas.
