Kuczynski Wins Peru By A Landmark 0.1% Margin
In the presidential battle between conservative Pedro Pablo Kuczynski and the conservative Keiko Fujimori, roughly half of Peru chose the candidate that doesn’t have a father in jail for crimes against humanity. Kuczynski declared victory with 50.1%, while Fujimori collected a measly 49.9% of the vote. Many were surprised Kuczynski could win since his former American citizenship was a prominent campaign issue. While he has technically renounced his US citizenship, his wife is still an American citizen and his children live in the United States.
