In the CPI survey, 40 percent of citizens were split between those who did not decide, 16 days before the general election, who would vote (24.8 percent) or who plan to do so blank or invalidate their ID (15.2).
Shown below, primarily from set preferences, populist Yunhei Lescano, at 11 percent, followed by former soccer player George Forsyth (8.1), neoliberal Kiko Fujimori (7.1), progressive Veronica Mendoza (5, 4) and right-wing extremist Raphael Lopez Aliaga (5.2).
Behind the neoliberals are Hernando de Soto (4.5), left-wing Pedro Castillo (4.3), conservative businessman and politician Cesar Acuña (4.0), former populist military officer Daniel Oreste (3.8), former nationalist president Olanta Humala (2.1) and center-right Julio Guzman ( 2.0).
Eight other candidates added 2.1 percent, among them ecologist Marco Arana and the neo-liberal Christian socialist Alberto Bingolia, according to Datum. In this context, the head of candidate Mendoza’s election campaign, Alvaro Campana, indicated the desire of the neoliberal media to hide the candidate.
He stressed that the debate between the two main candidates, last Sunday, clearly showed that Mendoza was ready to pull the country out of the current crisis and that many people were inclined in his favor.
He highlighted the online vote that awarded Mendoza the winner of the debate held by the TV station that organized the event, a feat achieved without JP, like other parties, having paid employees to create false opinion streams on social networks.
“They want to repeat the scenario of the lesser of two evils versus the greater evil” to create and prevent the possibility of the victory of a choice that would represent real change.
Campana added that the media hostility against Mendoza was constant in the election campaign and “ followed the same scenario that has been in use since 2016, which is ‘terruqueo’ (which links the left to terrorism) and the search for the generation of economic fear, among other components. .
Al-Zaeem also noted the inconsistency in access to the press and the “constant counter-campaigns being carried out by not only the power groups but even some of the state security agencies that give way to this game” and the significant difference in resources between the opposing candidates and the JP.
He pointed out that Mendoza states that “ a new government committed to change can be a starting point for building a new consensus based on deepening democracy, restoring national and popular sovereignty, social justice, and the full exercise of rights, solidarity and the common good as a basis for a new coexistence. ”
In addition, he noted that reformist liberal sectors do not assume the need to promote major changes, so “achieving a new political and social majority is an urgent task to guide Peru on the path of peace and development”.
Campana considered the importance of the initiative of a socialist group for left voters to vote for the candidate of this current in a better position at the ballot box, in order to “achieve a government that initiates the changes we need.”
