Update on Peruvian Elections

in partnership with the APPG on Peru

Peru's 2021 Presidential election proved to be one of - if not the - most polarised in the country's history. On 6 June, Pedro Castillo from Perú Libre (Free Peru) and Keiko Fujimori from Fuerza Popular (Popular Force) faced the polls to become Peru's next President in a run-off, following Congressional elections in April.

With the candidates' parties occupying opposite ends of the political spectrum, the result had potential to alter Peru's political, economic and social landscapes, and its international relations - one way or the other. Castillo's Perú Libre held a narrow lead in congressional seats, but his razor-thin lead in counted votes left the presidential result still too close to call at the time of this event.
