It seems pretty certain now that the presidential election second round runoff on 5th June will be between Keiko Fujimori and Pedro Pablo Kuczynski. Turnout at Sunday’s general election was 84.08% and the three leading candidates with 87.69% of the votes counted according to the Oficina Nacional de Procesos Electorales are as follows:

Keiko Fujimori of the right wing Popular Force Party is on 39.55% of the vote. That is some 17% ahead of second place candidate Pedro Pablo Kuczynski of the centre-right Peruvians for Change who is on 22.11%. In third place and locked out of the second round runoff is Verónika Mendoza of the left-wing Broad Left Front coalition who is on 18.27% of the vote.

The election count for the 130 Congress of the Republic seats looks set to reflect the presidential vote.
