Keiko Fujimori has a mixed legacy from her father, says the AS/COA vice president. ... Play Video
Peruvians went to the polls on June 5 for their presidential runoff election. The National Office of Electoral Processes (ONPE) is still counting votes, and candidates Keiko Fujimori and Pedro Pablo Kuczynski remain in a technical tie. In an appearance on CNN, AS/COA Vice President Eric Farnsworth spoke about each candidate's strengths. "You do have a real legacy issue with Keiko Fujimori, a lot of people ascribe to her some of the worst excesses of her father's 'regime'—as they would call it—whether it's corruption, or antidemocratic practices, but they also remember that her father conquered hyperinflation, and also conquered the Sendero Luminoso, which was a brutal guerrilla movement," said Farnsworth. "Pedro Pablo Kuczynski doesn't have the same sort of legacy," he added.
