• Peru presidential vote tightens, Fujimori loses ground


    LIMA: Peru’s presidential race is tightening on the eve of Sunday’s elections, with one poll showing a virtual tie between Keiko Fujimori, daughter of an ex-leader jailed for massacres, and former Wall Street banker Pedro Pablo Kuczynski. The 41-year-old Fujimori remains the favorite to win the runoff vote despite her father Alberto Fujimori’s dark legacy. But three last-minute polls showed her earlier estimated lead of more than five percentage points had narrowed. Part of the large chunk of previously undecided voters appeared to be opting for Kuczynski, 77, a former economy minister and World Bank executive. Pollster GfK said Friday its latest survey indicated Fujimori had 50.3 percent of the vote to 49.7 percent for Kuczynski.
