    Peru’s president-elect has promised change is coming after a long and divisive election period.

    Left-wing teacher and union leader Pedro Castillo has been declared the winner six weeks after the run-off. He beat his right-wing opponent by just 44,000 votes.

    The official results were delayed by accusations of fraud by the losing candidate Keiko Fujimori.

    Castillo said on Tuesday that he plans to form a “work team” made up of people from different political persuasions.
