FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Peru leftist Castillo claims election win as Fujimori fights result” – below is their description.

#Peruvian socialist candidate Pedro #Castillo claimed victory in the #presidential #election on Tuesday after clinging on to a narrow lead as the lengthy vote count ended, although his right-wing rival pledged to fight the result and has yet to concede.

Castillo ended the count 44,058 votes ahead of Keiko #Fujimori, who has made allegations of fraud with little proof and has tried to get some votes annulled. The result of the June 6 ballot has not been formally announced by electoral authorities, but Castillo hailed the win on Twitter.
