U.S. diplomacy described the second round of the June 6 presidential election in Peru as a "model of democracy," despite allegations by right-wing candidate Keiko Fujimori of fraud and her claim that thousands of ballots were invalid.

The Electoral Court is examining the appeals of the candidates, those of Mrs. Fujimori, the daughter of the then incumbent former President Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000) and those of the radical leftist candidate Pedro Castillo. The official result of the second round may be announced for several days.

"We congratulate the Peruvian authorities on conducting another round of free, fair, accessible and peaceful elections, despite the great challenges posed by the new coronavirus pandemic," said Ned Price, a spokesman for the State Department. in Washington.

"These recent elections are a model of democracy in the region. "We support giving the electoral authorities time to process and make public the results as required by Peruvian law."

After the official count of 100% of the ballots, Pedro Castillo, 51 years old, educator and trade unionist, leads with 50,12% of the votes, or with a difference of about 44.000 votes. Ms. Fuchimori, in the crosshairs of the corruption case, received 49,87%.

However, while the country is still awaiting the announcement of the result, supporters of the populist right-wing candidate, especially retirees, are calling on the armed forces to intervene and prevent Mr Castillo from running for the presidency. The staff, however, called on the citizens the day after the elections to "respect" the verdict of the ballot box.
