The head of the European Union Election Observation Mission (EU-EOM), José Ignacio Salafranca, said that after the presidential runoff on Sunday, Peru enters a stage of consensus and inclusion where all political parties should participate.

He suggested that the parties put forth effort so the country manages to get through the general elections.

According to Salafranca, “it is very important” for Peru to have a good system of political parties that put the interests of the nation first.

In addition, the EU-EOM chief observer mentioned that the electoral campaign was “tough” and included “personal verbal attacks.”

However, he praised the civic behavior of Peruvians, as well as the responsibility in which results were handled by the electoral institutions.
