RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The recount of the Peruvian presidential elections reached its final stretch amid lawsuits, revision of voting records, and street tensions, with leftist Pedro Castillo as the most voted candidate and rightwing Keiko Fujimori unwilling to assume, without a fight, her defeat.
The National Office of Electoral Processes (ONPE) entered on Thursday 100% of the voting records in its system and only 0.705% of the total remains to be counted. So far, Castillo has 50.195% of the valid votes (8,803,629 votes), with a 68,473 vote advantage over Fujimori, who received 49.805 . . .
