The former president of Bolivia Evo Morales (2006-2019) has criticized this Tuesday the conservative candidate for the Presidency of Peru, Keiko Fujimori, for having denounced fraud “without evidence” during the recount of the results of the second round, in which for the moment he is marching behind Pedro Castillo, stating that it is the “discourse of the racist, fascist and coup right wing.”
“The same discourse of the racist, fascist and coup right wing: it denounces ‘fraud’ without proof and attacks the democracy that it claims to defend,” Morales wrote on his Twitter account.
The message of the former Bolivian president continues to point out that Fujimori, like other representatives of the right, such as Donald Trump in the United States, or Carlos Mesa in Bolivia, “repeat the same lie and ignore the vote of the people.”
“That the result be respected,” Morales asked, a day after Fujimori denounced “signs of fraud” when Castillo took the lead with 50.2 percent of the votes compared to 49.7 percent for the leader. of Popular Force.
“We have noticed that there has been a strategy on the part of Free Peru to distort or delay the results that reflect the popular will. I am referring to the process of contesting the minutes, where the majority try to prevent those with the highest vote for Fuerza Popular are accounted for, “he said.
“This is something that is planned and systematic, and that is why it is important to alert the public so that, in addition, it can alert us if there have been other types of events in each of the regions,” he continued.
However, the Civil Association Transparency of Peru has rejected that it is possible to speak of an alleged electoral fraud and has assured that the complaints about possible irregularities do not constitute an indication of this, for which it has asked both candidates to “be very responsible” with your statements.
At the moment, with just over 96 percent of the tally sheets, Castillo continues to lead with 50.2 percent of the votes, ahead of Fujimori with 49.7 percent, after a second round with 75 , 3 percent participation.
