Peru Election Authorities Probe Alleged Vote-Buying

LIMA – Peru’s national election court told the ONPE electoral agency on Monday about the alleged vote-buying by presidential candidate Cesar Acuña.

An official communique said the court has informed ONPE about the supposed money-for-votes deal offered by the Alliance for Progress party’s presidential candidate.

This is a serious violation of the law, punishable by a fine of 395,000 soles ($113,505).

The television news program Panorama reported Sunday that Acuña paid 10,000 soles ($2,800) in cash to an association of shopkeepers in the Lima district of Chosica, and half that amount to a farmer in the northern Piura region.

The court picked up the report by Panorama and other media outlets about Acuña’s alleged vote-buying at his rallies.

Acuña is currently under investigation by the Attorney General’s Office and the elections court on suspicion that his doctoral dissertation at the University of Lima was a work of plagiary.

The elections court once again asked that the public respect the amount of time the law allows to resolve cases under its jurisdiction, and to trust the impartiality, autonomy and independence of its members.
