General elections took place in Peru on 10 April 2016. Incumbent President Ollanta Humala is ineligible to run due to constitutional term limits. Nineteen different candidates including two former presidents are competing to become Peru’s next head of state. Early indications suggest that centre-right candidate Keiko Fujimori has won the first round of Peru's presidential election; With two-fifths of ballots counted, Ms Fujimori had 39% and appeared likely to face Pedro Kuczynski, a former World Bank economist, in a June run-off vote. Mr Kuczynski had 24% while leftist Veronika Mendoza had 17%.
