And Castillo, with his communist economic plan wants, to reduce us by at least two centuries. So I can not vote for none of the two.

Although the total voices gathered by the right-wing parties renders a victory of Keiko Fujimori a priori more plausible, nothing is played both the two candidates arouse the rejection of part of the population.

But the candidate of the radical left Pedro Castillo also arouses a great mistrust. Elias, a marketing student, excludes voting for him: "I'm going to vote for Keiko Fujimori, because it's a right we know, while the other option is the radical left, and J Fear that we finish like Venezuela or Cuba.

As he, many Peruvians associate the left with Chavism or the terrorism of the bright trail that caused thousands of deaths in the 1980s in Peru. While the campaign for the second round has not started yet, the Peruvian society already seems very divided, which makes the outcome of the second round more than Incertaine.
