SAO PAULO, May 7 (UPI) -- Brazil's Liberal Front Party, or PFL, on Tuesday called for the country's ruling-party presidential candidate to end his campaign amid allegations implicating Jose Serra in a request for kickbacks totaling more than $6 million during the mid-1990s. The PFL said in a statement, however, "decision to step down is ultimately Serra's."
