Election Results...

I am printing off what an AP news article wrote about the results of our Elections here in Perú

                                              Ollanta  Humala          Keiko Fujimori

LIMA, Peru (AP) - Unofficial results show an anti-establishment military man who promises to redistribute Peru's wealth headed to a presidential runoff against the daughter of jailed former President Alberto Fujimori.

The count by the nongovernmental group Transparencia shows former Lt. Col. Ollanta Humala with 31.3 percent followed by Keiko Fujimori with 23.2 percent.

Because no candidate won a majority Sunday they will meet in a June 5 runoff.

The outcome presents Peruvians with what Nobel literature winner Mario Vargas Llosa called "a choice between Aids and terminal Cancer"  due to perceived anti-democratic tendencies of both candidates.

Alberto Fujimori led Peru in the 1990s and was recently sentenced to 25 years in prison for ordering killings.

These are definitely unofficial results and could change with the final tally.
