Meet the new Peruvian President

Same as the old one. Or rather one that they had about 15 years ago. Alan Garcia, former President of the country in a time that saw the country collapse economically, is leading his runoff opponent Ollanta Humala by a significant margin.
This is a good thing. Humala is a Chavista follower, and would complete a trifecta with Chavez in Venezuela and Evo Morales in Bolivia. Chavez has been meddling in Peru politics as of late. He would knock the foundations of Peruvian economy right out from under it with a massive Socialist/Communist overhaul. Luckily it looks like the Peruvian people are seeing through this.
