Peru is currently politically unstable: it has had four presidents in the last four years. Two rounds of presidential elections were held this summer, with many candidates claiming 10-12% of the vote. The runoff pitted Marxist Castillo against far-right Keiko Fujimori, daughter of former president Alberto Fujimori. Castillo won by a razor-thin margin, and Fujimori alleged that the results were fraudulent. What does the future hold in Peru with such intense division?
