Evo Morales calls to respect election results in Peru

 (Prensa Latina) Former Bolivian President Evo Morales on Tuesday called to respect the official results of the presidential runoff in Peru, which show Candidate Pedro Castillo as a possible winner against Keiko Fujimori.

‘The same discourse of the racist, fascist and coup right: it denounces ‘fraud’ without evidence and violates the democracy it supposedly defends,’ the leader of the Movement Toward Socialism warned on Twitter.

Donald Trump, in the United States; Carlos Mesa, in Bolivia; and Fujimori, in Peru, repeat the same lie and do not accept the people’s vote, warned the former president (2006-2019), who was ousted from office by a coup d’état that used the irregularities of the election, without proving them, to seize power.

A report from the National Office of Electoral Processes (ONPE) shows, with a total of 96.795 percent of the ballots counted so far, rural teacher Castillo as the front-runner of the runoff with 50.254 percent of votes in favor, compared to 49.746 percent for the neoliberal candidate.

Fujimori, despite claims that she would not make a statement until the final count was announced, said at a press conference on Monday that ‘there is a clear intention to boycott the will of the people.’
