Peru Votes 2016 - Analysing the Result of the Peruvian General Election

  • SCI Belgrave Square, 14/15 Belgrave Square, London

General elections took place in Peru on 10 April 2016.

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%.

Canning House is delighted to welcome Paulo Drinot, Senior Lecturer in Latin American History at UCL's Institute of the Americas, and Maria Luisa Puig, Latin America Analyst at Eurasia Group.
