Uruguay’s ruling party, the leftist coalition, Frente Amplio, took a bittersweet victory in Uruguay’s Presidential elections yesterday. They acquired nearly 47 percent of the total votes, but fell short of the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff. Meanwhile, two closely watched referendums, which look to address the wrongs of Uruguay’s former dictatorship were also voted down. FSRN'S Mike Fox has more from Montevideo.
