Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Significance

Fujimori, in turn, has resorted to more populist pledges in her attempt to attract voters, especially in rural areas. However, neither candidate can rest assured that endorsements by other first-round participants will carry much electoral weight.

Impacts

  • If he wins office, Castillo will need to mobilise support in society for his promised agenda of change.
  • A constitutional clash between the executive and Congress seems likely.
  • If Fujimori wins, allegations about past corruption will resurface.
