Update on Peruvian Elections

Following one of the most polarised elections in Peru's history on 6 June, Canning House and the APPG on Peru gather an expert panel to discuss what the result could mean for the country's political, economic and social environments.

Update on Peruvian Elections

in partnership with the APPG on Peru

Peru's 2021 Presidential election is proving to be one of - if not the - most polarised in the country's history. On 6 June, either Pedro Castillo from Perú Libre (Free Peru) or Keiko Fujimori from Fuerza Popular (Popular Force) will be elected 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 has potential to alter Peru's political, economic and social landscapes, and its international relations - one way or the other. Castillo's Perú Libre hold a narrow lead in congressional seats, but his razor-thin lead in counted votes leaves the presidential result still too close to call.

Join Canning House and the APPG on Peru after the election for a discussion with an expert panel on what the final result could mean for Peru.
