Ollanta Humala in First Place: Latest Polls and Vargas Llosa's Opinion
In a related piece of news, Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa expressed his concern of Humala receiving so much support for the elections. "What is going on in our country for such a cultural, moral and political blindness to take over?", he asked. He also recognized that Peru's democracy is mediocre at best, but that it nevertheless constitutes the only chance for a better future, as opposed to demagoguery, resentment and anger.
We will regret it (if Humala becomes president), as we Peruvians have done throughout our history whenever we opened our arms to dictators. (...) How is it possible that after 10 years of shame with Alberto Fujimori, where there was robbery and sacking, we want to go back to dictatorship, authoritanism, contrained press, a manipulated judiciary and the sistematic removal of human rights?.He finished by urging Peruvians not to be amnesiac.
Is it just me, or one could have said the exact same thing of Evo, before the Bolivian elections?
