East Timor: Who will win the Run-Off

Categories: East Asia, Timor-Leste, Elections

Tubleweed says that if it comes to a run-off between the two leading candidates in East Timor elections Francisco “Lu Olo” Guterres [1] might be favored over Ramos-Horta [2].”From the personal views i've gathered , votes for Lu'olo seem to be really sentimentally tied to the resistance years. Fretilin still evokes strong emotions and pride in the people. THe resistance years were a time when they stood united as a people.”
