Peru Elections: Will There Be A Left-Wing Resurgence?

Within the candidacy and project of Pedro Castillo and the Free Peru party, many of the historically marginalized sectors are finding new found hope and inspiration.

On June 6, 25 million Peruvians will elect their next president and two vice presidents for the period 2021-2026. Leftist candidate Pedro Castillo of the Free Peru political party will face off against far-right candidate Keiko Fujimori of the Popular Force party. All major polls have predicted a victory for Castillo.
