RIO DE JANEIRO, June 5 /TASS/. The second round of presidential elections will take place in Peru on Sunday. Keiko Fujimori, a candidate from the Popular Force party who won the first round of election with 39% of the votes on April 10, and Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, the 77-year-old former minister of economy and the presidential candidate from the Peruvians for Change party, will run in a tight race for the presidential chair.
The polling stations in Peru will open at 08:00 local time (16:00 Moscow time) and will stay open until 16:00 (00:000 Moscow time on Monday). The results of exit polls will be announced soon after the polling stations close. The final result will be known several days later after all the votes have been counted.
The candidates need to gain a simple majority of the votes in the second round. The new president is to be sworn in on July 28 for a term of five years. The Peruvian constitution forbids one person to hold the presidential post for more than two consecutive presidential terms. That is why the incumbent Peruvian left-centrist president, Ollanta Humala, is not running in the elections.
Peruvian citizens older than 18 are eligible for the vote. Voting is mandatory for all the citizens under 70. A total of 22.9 million people (the population of Peru is 30.7 million people) have been registered in voter lists. About 100,000 policemen and troopers will guard law and order during the election.
