Jorge Muñoz takes advantage over his opponents in the race for mayor of Lima to get a 27% intention to vote, in a new simulation of voting that Efe had access to, just one day of the regional and municipal elections in Peru.
The Datum survey, which by law can not be published in Peru, breaks the short distance that separated the twenty candidates to the municipal chair of Lima and confirms the promotion of the candidate for the centrist Popular Action party and current mayor of the Lima district of Miraflores.
Former Minister Daniel Urresti, candidate for the party Podemos Peru of businessman José Luna, appears in second place of intention to vote with 14.2%.
In third place is the former congressman Renzo Reggiardo, candidate of the Peru Patria Segura party, the only one of the twenty candidates who did not want to participate in the debate organized by the National Elections Jury (JNE).
Further away from the top three, the current mayor of the Lima district of La Molina, Juan Carlos Zurek, of the Somos Perú party, is tied with 4.4% of the preferences; and businessman Ricardo Belmont, of the Peru Libertario party, who was previously mayor of Lima and also a congressman.
Close to both figure with 4.2% of the intention to vote the former Congressman and journalist Alberto Beingolea, candidate of the Popular Christian Party (PPC).
With 3% is Luis Castañeda Pardo, candidate of the National Solidarity party and son of the current mayor, Luis Castañeda Lossio, who by law can not stand for re-election.
The candidate of the Siempre Unidos party, Manuel Velarde, current mayor of the Lima district of San Isidro, continues with 2.4% of the votes.
Matched with 2% of the intention to vote are Jaime Salinas, candidate of Alianza Para el Progreso (APP), and Diethell Columbus, who is running for the Fujimorist Fuerza Popular party.
For his part, the candidate of the Popular Agricultural Front of Peru (Frepap), Pedro Silva, has 1.6%, followed by former congressman and evangelical pastor Humberto Lay, who has 1.4%.
Likewise, 9.2% of those who participated in the simulation preferred to vote blank while 6.8% chose to cast a null vote.
In the simulation carried out today, 500 people between 18 and 70 years of age participated in 32 of the 43 districts that make up Lima, with a margin of error of 4.4% and a confidence level of 95%.
