BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - The ruling liberal coalition candidate Daniel Martinez was narrowly leading the Uruguay election in the early hours of Monday, according to an official count of just over a quarter of votes, but a determining second round will be needed. 

The liberal Frente Amplio coalition has run Uruguay for more than 14 years, but Martinez, a former mayor of the capital Montevideo, faced a significant challenge from lawyer Luis Lacalle Pou, 46, who may now form a right-wing coalition with small parties to oust him. 

With 27% of polling stations counted, Frente Amplio had 36% of the vote compared to the National Party of Lacalle with 35%, the electoral body said.

“We will continue doing all we can to ensure stability and certainty. Uruguay has to continue (...) being a nation of justice."

Daniel Martinez, presidential candidate.” 

 

If no candidate gets over 50% of the vote, the two with the most votes will meet in a run-off on the last Sunday of November. "

“I offer my congratulations to my opponent in the second round,” Martinez told journalists outside his campaign headquarters. 

He added in a tweet: “We will continue doing all we can to ensure stability and certainty. Uruguay has to continue growing, distributing wealth and being a nation of justice.” 

Lacalle looks likely to lead a coalition of conservative groups into the second round that could displace the Frente Amplio. 

Speaking after polls closed, Lacalle suggested he could lead a “multicolored front, headed by the National Party” and that there was “fertile ground” for agreements with other parties. 

Ernesto Talvi, leader of the smaller, centre-right Colorado party, said on Sunday he would throw his weight behind Lacalle. 

“Uruguay needs a change, we invite our voters to support Lacalle Pou,” he said.
