LIMA (Reuters) - Peruvian presidential candidate Pedro Pablo Kuczynski held a razor-thin lead over Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of a jailed former president, in an Ipsos poll seen by Reuters a day before Sunday’s election.
Kuczynski had 50.4 percent of valid votes in a mock voting exercise Ipsos conducted on Saturday, compared to Fujimori’s 49.6 percent. The two are statistically tied as the poll had a 1.8 percentage point margin of error.
