Two polls in Peru confirm Castillo as front runner

Lima, May 30 (Prensa Latina) Two new polls on Sunday confirmed that presidential candidate Pedro Castillo holds the first position in the voting intention, whereas his rival, Keiko Fujimori, was able to narrow the gap, a week before the runoff in Peru.

The poll from the Institute of Peruvian Studies (non-governmental) showed 43.3 percent of votes goes for the leftist candidate and 38.3 percent for the neoliberal one, a 4.5-percent decline for the former and a 3.9 increase for the latter, while 21.3 percent is undecided.

The same difference in favor of Castillo (42/40) is shown in the polls from the private company Ipsos, according to which the votes for both candidates have increased compared to those of a week ago, that is, 2 percent for Castillo and 3 percent for his rival.

Ipsos also did a voting simulation, where Castillo also won (45,1/43,1), and removed the blank and invalid votes, as it will be done in the official count, resulting in 51.5 percent for him and 48.9 percent for her.

The Institute of Peruvian Studies consulted the electorate on who will be the winner, and 47 percent of voters believe that Castillo will win, and only 33 percent of them think Fujimori will be elected.
