Kuczynski, Peru's 'gringo' president-elect

Peru’s president-elect Pedro Pablo Kuczynski says the job will be the last entry on a long resume that also includes Wall Street banker, economy minister, concert flautist and motorcycle enthusiast. Kuczynski, 77, will be the next leader of one of Latin America’s fastest-growing economies after his rival, Keiko Fujimori, conceded defeat Friday, ending a hard-fought presidential election that was decided by a razor-thin margin. The incoming president cut an eccentric figure on the campaign trial, where he played folk music on the flute, boogied stiffly to the disco beats of his campaign song and had a man-sized guinea pig for a mascot.
