LIMA - Left-wing nationalist Ollanta Humala led the first round of Peru's presidential election early on Monday, with two pro-business rivals battling for second place and the chance to challenge him in a June 5 run-off, according to official results.

With 50 percent of ballots tallied after Sunday's vote, officials said Humala had 27.62 percent of the votes, followed by former Wall Street banker Pedro Pablo Kuczynski at 23.11 percent and rightist lawmaker Keiko Fujimori at 21.95 percent.
