LIMA, June 5 (UPI) -- With 92 percent of votes counted in Peru's presidential elections, former World Bank executive Pedro Pablo Kuczynski is leading by less than 1 percent over Keiko Fujimori.
Peru's National Office of Electoral Processes on Monday announced Kuczynski has earned 8,124,581 votes -- 50.32 percent -- whereas Fujimori, daughter of former long-time president Alberto Fujimori, has gained 8,021,198 votes -- 49.68 percent.
The presidential election remains too close to call. Fujimori's father was president for a decade before before charges of human rights abuses brought down his popular presidency. But Keiko, 41, who has said tackling crime is her top priority, could become president as the second round of presidential voting continued on Sunday.
She had a larger lead before Sunday's polling, but corruption scandals in her Popular Force Party may have cut in to her support.
Kuczynski, 77, was also a former prime minister of Peru who has served as finance minister and energy minister as well. He is an ex-Wall Street financier, who has said he would use his international financial experience to promote economic growth.
