(Lima) Peru’s moderate presidential candidate Caico Fujimori will not be able to identify victory on Saturday with his left – wing rival Pedro Castillo if the election tribunal declares him the winner of the June 6 poll.

“We have seen a lot of complaints of manipulation over the last few weeks and they want to force us to announce the result,” he said.To me Fujimori denies “fraud” without proof.
