Perú says NO to the imperialist Chavez

The people of Perú have sent a very clear message that Chavez’ choice was not going to be theirs.

Every Latin American leftist and nationalist presidential candidate should have Chavez as its benefactor.
LIMA, PERU: Nation returns former leader, Alan Garcia, to presidency

Garcia’s lead of 55.5 percent against 44.5 percent for Ollanta Humala with 77.3 percent of the vote counted was insurmountable, said the head of the electoral agency, Magdalena Chu.
