Shining Path Party Seeks to Register for Peru Elections

LIMA – Fudepp, a broad coalition that includes a group seen as the political arm of the Shining Path rebels, said on Monday that it has secured 500,000 signatures in support of its bid to take part in the 2016 Peruvian elections.

The opposition front said it meets all of the requirements to qualify for registration as a political organization.

Fudepp urged its supporters to ensure the coalition is registered by the Feb. 10 deadline and to put forward candidates for Congress.

Besides the Shining Path-linked Movadef, which urges an amnesty for people convicted of crimes in connection with Peru’s 1980-2000 armed conflict, Fudepp includes parties representing nationalists, environmentalists and indigenous peoples.

The Maoist-inspired Shining Path insurgency erupted in 1980 and killed tens of thousands of people before its core elements were smashed in 1992.
