Socialist Castillo holds slim lead as Peru presidential vote count reaches tense finale
Peru’s presidential election vote count ticked closer to the end on Tuesday, but a slender margin between the two polarized candidates, contested ballots and accusations of fraud mean the winner may take a lot longer to confirm. Socialist Pedro Castillo, who has roiled markets and miners with plans to shake up the copper-rich country’s politics, held a slim lead of some 50.2% ahead of right-wing rival Keiko Fujimori on 49.8%, with almost 96% of the votes tallied. The leftist candidate, the son of peasant farmers, had surged late in the count, driven by an energized rural vote beyond capital Lima.
