LIMA - Left-wing nationalist Ollanta Humala was placed first in Peru's presidential election and former finance minister Pedro Pablo Kuczynski was running second with 50 percent of votes counted, local radio said early on Monday based on official data.
The result showed Humala with 27.62 percent of the votes, Kuczynski with 23.11 percent and rightist lawmaker Keiko Fujimori with 21.95 percent. That would mean a June 5 run-off between Humala and Kuczynski, though unofficial quick counts have suggested Fujimori will advance.
