In her first speech after today’s exit polls placed Ollanta Humala as the winner, Keiko Fujimori told supporters she will respect the official results.

"I will wait for the results with the necessary prudence," Fujimori said from a balcony of Hotel Bolívar in Lima’s historic downtown.

"If official results back the difference we’ve seen in the quick counts, I will be the first to recognize the results, as I’ve said since the beginning," she said. "I ask Humala supporters the same thing: Wait for the final results with a lot of responsibility and prudence."
