Elections in Peru: Humala and Fujimori will face in the second round
Peru, April 9, 2011
Nearly completed the scrutiny in Peru, the ballot will be on 5 June. The polls closed and the counting confirmed the victory of Humala, but did not achieve the presidency in the first round.
The percentage is 31.6% for Humala and 21.4% for Fujimori. Farther is the former Minister Kuczynski with 19.2%.
Previously, presidential candidates had complied with the tradition of having breakfast with Peruvian journalists, where they took time to request for a massive vote in peace.
Also Peruvian citizens elected a new unicameral Congress, which will be fragmented due to the dispersal of votes. The next government will not own majority.
With intelligence, Humala campaign focused on showing that despite the boom of the Peruvian economy, the famous “trickle down” does not reach the pockets of the poorest but reaches the pockets of a traditional political class that support them.
