“I don’t want my children to live in a country where theft,lies and killing become normal,” said Peru’s most prominent leftist.

Former leftist presidential candidate Veronika Mendoza told teleSUR that her party and leftist movements throughout Peru will pile the pressure on the country’s next president of Peru, whether it be Pedro Pablo Kuczynski or Keiko Fujimori.

“I don’t want my children to live in a country where theft, lies and killing become normal,” said Mendoza.

Unofficial preliminary results show that Kuczynski is slightly ahead of Fujimori, with an Ipsos quick showing he has 50.8 percent of the vote against Fujimori’s 49.2.

Mendoza added this is a clear sign that Peruvians reject a government connected to drug trafficking and former dictator Alberto Fujimori.
