Humala and Fujimori Lead Peru’s Second Electoral Round
A quick count by pollster Ipsos-Support on a 60% indicated sample of 1,500 of the 40,000 polling stations in the country, showed Humala had 31.8% of the votes, 22.8% for Fujimori and 19 6% for Kuczynski. “Fujimori is the first choice to move to the second round,” says the director of Ipsos-Apoyo, Alfredo Torres.
Humala, 48, promised to redistribute income in Peru on his speech on Sunday after passing to the second round, he made a “call for unity to all those who want a great transformation” as well. He also promised to convene a Constituent Assembly to lay the revocation of electoral mandates, including the president, and nationalize companies, which resembles the model established by President Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, which is followed in countries like Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua. Humala concluded that he does not like “the model Chávez wants to apply in his country” and that Brazil is “the model to follow. ”
Keiko, 35, who is trying to defend the legacy of her father, former President Alberto Fujimori, who was sentenced to 25 years in prison for human rights violations, said on Sunday: “I can say with confidence, serenity, firmness, and joy that we are in the second round, dear friends,” she shouted in front of her fans.
