Ex-World Bank economist with narrow lead in Peru election

A former World Bank economist has been edging out the daughter of imprisoned ex-President Alberto Fujimori in Peru’s presidential election Sunday, according to early results from a vote widely seen as a referendum on the disgraced strongman’s legacy.

With about half of polling stations counted, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski had 50.6 percent of the votes compared with 49.4 percent for his rival Keiko Fujimori, whose lead evaporated in the final weeks of campaigning.
