Castillo named president-elect in Peru, Fujimori concedes
Al Jazeera, 20 Jul 2021
Left-wing candidate Pedro Castillo has officially been named Peru's president-elect.
Losing candidate Keiko Fujimori alleged the elections were marred by fraud, delaying the results.
She now faces trial on unrelated corruption charges.
A teacher and union leader, Castillo is a new face in electoral politics - and has campaigned on a platform of wealth redistribution.
