Keiko Fujimori retains more than 90% of the vote in Peru with a small advantage over Pedro Castillo | International

Elections Peru They will not have a clear winner until the last minute. Equality is the maximum. Fake voting by winning vote. With 90.8% of the vote counted, Fujimori maintains 50.5% support for Castillo compared to 49.5%, which decreases as the count progresses. With 40% of the vote counted, the Election Commission had warned that “rural votes and forest votes” would be the last reflection in the results. They are favorable to the school teacher. The two polls, released this Sunday, showed a technical relationship after the polls closed. The Conservative candidate Keiko Fujimori Achieved a small gain in the exit poll (50.3% vs. 49.7%) Left-wing Point Pedro Castillo It was charged the lowest of the rapid numbers released after hours (50.2% and 48.8%).

Fujimori received the results of a referendum in the capital, Lima. Point Pedro Castillo in the world, in the mountains, in Takabamba. Two different places to look at the country. The poll suggests that this is being observed in the results of the regions. Where one or the other has won, they have done so easily. In some cases it will touch 90% of the vote.

The first poll, which offered that small difference in favor of the right-wing candidate, had a margin of error of 3% and was produced with interviews with 30,000 voters. Second, the quicker the number, the less likely it is that the margin of error is 1%, because this is done with representative tables of selected tables. Although the margins were very narrow and the official figure could drag on for several days, they celebrated happily in both places, giving the polls a few tenth of the winners.

Fujimori embraced when he heard about the exit poll. “We welcome the results, but when looking at the edge, it is important to be prudent. I tell all Peruvians,” the candidate said. He then used a similar tone from the past week, with which he has attracted a good number of Fujimorists: “What you see here is the unity of all Peruvians. Henceforth I demand wisdom, peace and tranquility. For those who do not vote for us and those who do not vote ”.

That was the first Flash This disturbed Castillo, who issued a letter to the Electoral Authority urging him to reconsider all the minutes. Was pointing throughout the day that there might be a foot from side to side. “I call on Peruvian people from all corners of the country to take to the streets peacefully to remain vigilant in the defense of democracy. #ADefenderElVotoThe author wrote in a tweet. That first poll, while suggesting a technical balance, chilled his followers. Secondly they were full of joy. At Plaza de Tacamba, from where Candidate Day followed, people shouted “Yes, we can!”

In Lima, followers of both activists took to the streets. They met at Plaza Bolognese, near the bipartisan campus, and minor incidents took place. Police tried to avoid clashes and called home at midnight. The curfew order scheduled for eleven o’clock at night was not respected.

The campaign has divided the country into two streams. The tension is at its maximum. Castillo, who won the first round (with 2.7 million votes, 19%), led the referendum in the first 15 days, but Fujimori came back in the last part. It is often said that the favorite in Peru will never win. The daughter of dictator Alberto Fujimori, who ruled the country between 1992 and 2000 (1.9 million votes in the first round, 13%), has been exaggerated since she was able to advance to the second round. At any time the television was turned on, the Peruvian team appeared on the screen wearing his shirt, his campaign uniform. Groups across the country launched an indirect (and very explicit) message in his favor to circumvent the election law.

His main weapon was to instill in him and the Peruvian ruling class the fear of Castillo’s arrival, which, without hesitation, represented an adventure towards communism and economic statistics. Fujimori, 46, could be president at a time when he has very little political capital. His last five years of sanctions in Congress have tarnished his image. An attorney charged him with money laundering Odebrecht case It does not help. However, opposition to Castillo’s representation in the majority of the country has elevated him. Historical Fujimorists like the writer Mario Vargas Losa has backed him.

Castillo, a far-left trade unionist, has a much lower profile than his opponent, partly by choice. The 51-year-old professor did not provide interviews. At rallies he complained that the neutrality considered for certain sectors of society was not respected. His biggest effort in the final extension was to try to distance himself from the leader of the Peruvian Liberal Party, Vladimir Cherran, who is more attached as a guest than as a real fighter. Seron is a staunch leftist and is close to Cuba and Venezuela. In the last debate, he stressed that no matter what his opponent says, he respects the private property and market economy. Castillo was more focused at the last minute and tried to impress the urban voter, He may be tempted to vote for Fujimori as less evil.
