  Sham Elections in Peru?

Social Justice Posted by <Xnoubis> on Sunday May 28, @09:51AM
from the path-less-shining dept.

Voting has started in the controversial Peruvian run-off elections, although Alejandro Toledo, the opposition candidate against two-time incumbent Alberto Fujimori, has withdrawn from the race, claiming that the polling process has been rigged to guarantee Fujimori's victory. International monitors, including the Organization of American States, the European Union, and the Carter Center, have backed Toledo's claim by withdrawing their endorsements of the election.

Toledo was originally favored to win in the first round of elections on April 9, but the tallied votes strangely exceeded the number of voters by 1.4 million, resulting in a near tie with Fujimori. Peru could conceivably face international sanctions if the government accepts today's results.

Until recently, South American countries had been making great strides toward democracy, but developments in Ecuador, Paraguay, and Venezuala, as well as Peru, indicate that this trend may be reversing.

Update 5/30: Election results favored Fujimori as expected, but an unusually strong condemnation from the U.S. has led the international pressure to discourage Peru from continuing down the road to dictatorship.
