'Vote against Fujimori,' urges Peru third-place candidate

Leftist congresswoman Veronika Mendoza, pictured on April 7, 2016, reluctantly endorsed center-right economist Pedro Pablo Kuczynski for the Peruvian presidencyThe third-place candidate in Peru’s presidential election urged her supporters Monday to vote against controversial frontrunner Keiko Fujimori in a runoff this weekend, giving a grudging but potentially important endorsement to her rival. Veronika Mendoza, a leftist congresswoman, warned Peru risked returning to the dark days of former president Keiko’s father Alberto Fujimori, who is serving a 25-year prison sentence for human rights abuses during his decade in office (1990-2000).
