KEIKO FUJIMORA LEADS IN THE POLLS FOR TWO POWERFUL REASONS, TO WIT: A) BECAUSE THE PUBLIC IS AWARE THAT KEIKO AND HIS FATHER ACTED FOR THE WELL-BEING OF THE COUNTRY, TERRORISM WAS CONTROLLED, THE ECONOMY IMPROVED, THEY CARRIED OUT GREAT WORKS, THE GOVERNMENT WASN’T TARNISHED BY DIRECT ACTIONS ON THE PART OF FUJIMORA BUT BY THOSE OF MONTESINOS. B) BECAUSE THE PEOPLE WANT THE FUJIMORA FAMILY TO BE RESTOED, BEFORE AN INJUST AND UNREASONABLE DETENTION OF FUJIMORA WHEN THERE ARE THOSE THAT HAVE COMMITTED CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND GOVERNING WITHOUT SANCTIONS, AFTER RETURNING FROM ABROAD, THEY NOT ONLY KILLED PRISONERS WITHOUT PITY, BUT THEY ALSO DID THE SAME THING IN BAGUA AND NO ONE JUDGED THEM. WHAT SHAMEFUL IMPUNITY Add a little bit of seriousness into your news. To say that Keyko leads in the polls is irresponsible. 1) TOLEDO - ( MANIQUI - OF – U.S.A ).Therefore things will go wrong for us, in case you haven’t noticed that country is ambitious and abusive it will own us and we will be their slaves. We will not allow that 2) - CASTAÑEDA-(WORKS WILL NOT CHANGE OUR SOCIAL PROBLEMS). – it also doesn’t work 3) KEIKO FUJIMORI (DOING AWAY WITH CORRUPTION). – It is the best path I AM VERY SADDEND BY HOW MUCH THEY HATE THE POLITICIANS, PRESS, WRITERS TO THIS PARTY ABOUT ALL OF ITS POLICIES – WHAT, THEY DON’T EAT IF CRIME DOESN’T EXIST…??? – BUT THE POOR ARE THE MAJORITY – AND WE ARE WITH KEIKO – WHAT WE WANT IS PEACE IN OUR COUNTRY HELLO, I THINK KEIKO IS A GOOD OPTION FOR THE COUNTRY, WELL EVERY PERSON HAS THE RIGHT TO BE ELECTED AND TO ELECT, BESIDES IF ALBERTO FUJIMORA IS ACCUSED OF COMMITTING MISTAKES, I include the wise and illustrious phrase of a great man “he who is without sin let him cast the first stone.” SO FRIENDLY READER do not judge the mistakes of the past and least of all despise the daughter of Alberto Fujimora for an alleged mistake of her father, she is a different person and capable and with a fresh mind in which to govern the country, and you, friend is a christian, LET’S PRAY TO GOD SO THAT HE CAN GIVE THE WISDOM TO ELECT A CAPABLE GOVERNMENT AND THE ONE THAT IS ELECTED HAVE THE DISPOSITION TO SEEK DIVINE COUNSEL BECAUSE ON HIM RESTS THE SUCCESS OF A GOVERNMENT…WITH MUCH AFFECTION WILLIAM ALEGRIA GARCIA Ignorance is the worst misfortune of mankind, the worst that could happen to PERUVIANS is to elect foreign people, people without rank, without any academic preparation; just remember- PERUVIANS we have even elected a prostitute like SUSI DIAZ, illiterates like FUJIMORI, that is how we are. And to continue the same history PERU is headed down the very same road. May VELASCO ALVARADO PANIAGUA return. In reality I think is that despite each of the candidates giving us their best “Speech”, unfortunately there isn't much to choose from, unfortunately we have no choice but to vote for the least corrupt, or for the one that has committed the fewest mistakes, it shouldn’t have to be like this, or haven’t you ever heard: “He steals, but he creates jobs”…or “This one, we already know”…it is very true that we should vote for new ideas, young people…but I believe all across the board there should be young people, because you also know that one rotten apple spoils the whole barrel…Let’s vote conscientiously. Only this way will we be able to change something in this country where we live… I think Keyko’s proposal is very good. If we consider how her father’s government wasn’t as bad compared to that of Alan Garcia’s. At least the people should admit that there was economic stability and much more, on the other hand, with Alan there are more increases in the basic price of food and ended up selling the national companies to foreigners. It is true that no one person is perfect but a mistake is not committed twice, if we want development we should support Keyko who is our better option!!! 400 absences, more than 180 days off for maternity leave, more than 223 days for 18 trips abroad, and she only presented motions regarding health, but…She already got paid: one million soles…!! Now she wants to be the President of Peru. She only succeeded in having five proposals approved in four years of work. Furthermore she was out of the country for 223 days and according to the Congressional attendance record, she has more than 400 absences. Keiko is investigated for the first time for profiteering/embezzlement. WELL, I RECOGNIZE THAT YOUR FATHER PUT AN END TO TERRORISM IN PERU, HE BROUGHT LIGHT TO MY COUNTRY, ASPHALT TO THE HIGHWAY FROM NASCA TO CUZCO, SINCE A I WAS A CHILD I WAS A FUJIMORISTA AND EVEN CRIED WHEN HE LEFT PERU, BUT NOW THAT I AM A PROFESSIONAL I SEE THAT EVERYTHING WAS ONLY A FARSE, THERE IS NO WORK FOR THE YOUNG, MUCH LESS FOR THE EDUCATION OF THE YOUNG IT FORCES US TO LEARN THAT WE DON’T LIKE THE STATE THEY SHOULD GIVE THE TRAINING TO US BUT WE WHO ARE MANY SOMETIMES CANNOT GO TO ANY TRAINING AT THE BIG CITIES, AT THE END OF IT ALL YOU ALL PROMISE AND DON’T KEEP THAT PROMISE WELL THE DAY WILL COME WHEN INKARRY IS UNITING HER BASE I WILL NOT VOTE FOR HER For me neither your father’s government or that of others has been good for our country. I've been here in Argentina studying for the past 3 years, and education is in fact free, something that is a farce in Peru. I'm a teacher and studied for 5 years and I come here to work because back there you have to have money to use it, our poor country.................. Keiko would be the continuity of his father in other words he would continue the narco-GOVERNMENT, he already has a habit of taking money from all Peruvians and wants to keep stealing from peru, hopefully they reconsider. .....
Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of ex-president Alberto Fujimori — in prison for human rights violations — tops the list of hopefuls in the April 2011 presidential race, according to a poll on September 22.

Keiko Fujimori, 35, is a popular member of Peru’s single chamber legislature who became popular as the country’s de facto first lady when her parents divorced while her father was president.

If she decides to run, she would just scrape by on age eligibility, barely reaching the age of 36 required to become president.

Fujimori has a 24 percent approval ratings, followed by former Lima mayor Luis Castaneda with 19 percent, according to a poll by Ipsos Apoyo.

Third is Alejandro Toledo, president 2001-2006 and credited for laying the groundwork for the country’s economic success.

He is followed by the runner-up in the 2006 election, nationalist Ollanta Humala, with 14 percent.

President Alan Garcia, who is at the end of his second term in office, cannot run for a third consecutive term.

Fujimori’s current level of support would force her into a runoff vote, in which Castaneda would defeat her 43 to 40 percent, according to the poll.

The poll was carried out among 1,933 people across the country, in a nation with 19.5 million voters. It has a two point margin of error.

Alberto Fujimori, president 1990-2000, was sentenced in April to 25 years prison on charges linked to running a secret army hit squad that killed 25 civilians during the country’s brutal internal insurgency.

The former president resigned by fax from Japan in 2000 as he fled a corruption scandal sparked by a video of his spymaster, Vladimiro Montesinos, seen paying off an opposition lawmaker.

Keiko Fujimori has said that she would pardon her jailed father if elected, though it is unclear if she has the authority to do so.
