Peru’s presidential election

  • With 98.33% of votes counted, Pedro Castillo from the far-left Free Peru party was the frontrunner with 50.20%,

  • Due to the closeness of the race, isolated altercations between pro-Castillo and pro-Fujimori supporters could escalate

  • If Castillo wins, he will likely seek to increase corporate taxes, and renegotiate extractive-sector contracts.
