Former leftist president Tabare Vazquez and his center-right rival Luis Lacalle Pou likely will head into a runoff vote after Sunday's presidential election, exit polls showed.
President Jose Mujica will be succeeded either by his Broad Front ally Vazquez, who earned 44-46 percent of votes, or the center-right National Party's Lacalle Pou, who netted 31-34 percent, according to pollsters Equipos Mori, Factum and Cifra.
