The voters of both parties have demanded that the popular will be respected.

It is a situation that has never occurred in Peru before.

With just over three weeks to go before the new government takes office, it is still not known who will occupy the presidency of the Republic.

This Tuesday was exactly one month since the citizens turned out to vote in the second round of the presidential elections and three weeks since the counting of votes granted to the candidate of Peru Libre ended, Pedro Castillo, an advantage of 44,058 votes over the candidate of Fuerza Popular, Keiko Fujimori.

And yet Peruvians are still waiting.
