Opposition candidate closes in on Brazil's Rousseff ahead of vote
By Eduardo Simões and Bruno Federowski SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil's main opposition party launched the candidacy of its leader Aecio Neves on Saturday to challenge President Dilma Rousseff's re-election bid in October on a platform of fiscal austerity and pro-market policies. He lambasted the leftist Rousseff for squandering public money and undermining the financial stability given to Brazil by the real currency plan adopted by former PSDB president Fernando Henrique Cardoso. Neves, a senator with a successful record as governor of Brazil's second-richest state, Minas Gerais, is chipping away at Rousseff's lead less than four months from election day, a poll published on Saturday showed.
