LIMA, April 8 A Datum poll shows left-wing
candidate Ollanta Humala winning the first round of Peru's
presidential election on Sunday with 31.9 percent of the vote,
followed by rightist lawmaker Keiko Fujimori with 22.3 percent,
a source with access to the poll said on Friday.
The poll, carried out between April 5 and April 7 among
5,002 people, gave former Prime Minister Pedro Pablo Kuczynski
17.3 percent and former President Alejandro Toledo 15.3
percent, the source said on condition of anonymity. The poll
has a margin of error of 1.4 percentage points.
Such an outcome on Sunday would pitch Humala and Fujimori
in a June 5 run-off.
