  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Fujimori leads in tight Peru presidential vote” – below is their description.

    Right-wing populist Keiko #Fujimori held a narrow lead Monday in #Peru’s #presidential #election, but the crisis-hit nation’s race was too close to call as votes were still being tabulated from countryside bastions of support for radical leftist Pedro Castillo. Fujimori had 50.27 percent of ballots to #Castillo’s 49.7 percent, according to partial results from Peru’s electoral body, with about 90 percent of polling stations counted after voting Sunday in a country battered by years of political turbulence. FRANCE 24’s Thomas Nicolon explains.
