"Keiko Fujimori is wasting no time claiming fraud. For more on this, we turn to the world's Latin America correspondent Corey Valencia so likely new President Castillo appears to have won a quarter percentage point. I mean, things are still in the conditional Jorge, but this does seem like a real victory. Almost first of all, who was Pedro Castillo? Yes. Pedro Castillo is a former schoolteacher former union leader from Peru's northern Andean region. And he's a candidate and likely new president who very much appealed to the rural poor working class for the first round of voting. He arrived at his local voting station on horseback wearing a straw hat. His main campaign slogan was no more poor people in a rich country, so he very much tapped into the inequalities of Peru. The economic inequalities. The social inequalities, the geographic inequalities, even the racial inequalities. So what's on Casio's agenda? Well, to be honest, Marco, I am still trying to figure that out because Pedro Procedures party to leave or free Peru is on paper, a Marxist Leninist party. But Pedro Castillo has tried to distance himself from that he is trying to calm fears from investors and conservatives. In fact, in this speech that he gave to his supporters earlier this week, he said that he is not a communist and that his government will create an environment in which both the working class and entrepreneurs will thrive. Now the Peruvian Congress is divided among many parties. So regardless of whether he governs from the far far left or the left of center, he won't be able to do just anything that he wants. And why isn't Cassio's victory? A done deal yet? Well, that's because, as you mentioned Marco Keiko Fujimori, the conservative former member of Congress and daughter of a former president, Is claiming that there was widespread fraud. Now her complaints can be summarized in two points. First, she is saying that the ballot sheets at some local stations, the ballot sheets that certify the votes were improperly signed. And second, she is saying that there were irregularities at voting stations where she didn't receive a single vote. Of course, Elections officials are investigating these claims, but so far there seems to be thin evidence of what she is claiming, and international electoral observers. Say that they believe that Peru's election was clean Is Keiko Fujimori, part of the investor and entrepreneur space in Peru, that you're talking about that is worried what a socialist president will do to the country. Yes, absolutely. In fact, when Pedro Castillo says that he is not a communist, he is largely responding to Keiko Fujimori because Keiko Fujimori as part of her campaign, one of her slogans was Choose Democracy because many believe that under Pedro Castillo, Peru's government will become a communist government. So yes, certainly Keiko Fujimori, who is very much for free markets. Is part of that class that has fears of Pedro Castillo presidency. So Jorge, how long until we have official results? When does this thing finally done? That depends on who you ask. But elections. Experts in Lima say that that they're hopeful that by the end of June or the beginning of July, these issues will be resolved. There's optimism that that it will be with ample time before The date on which a new president is scheduled to take office. And that is the 28th of July, There was Latin America correspondent Jorge Valencia, speaking with us about Pedro Castillo, The man who we are almost certain is set to take over the presidency in Peru. Okay. Thanks very much. You're welcome Marco. When Europe went into its covid lockdowns last march, and hospitals began to overflow health systems were faced with a dilemma. What to do with non coronavirus patients in need of urgent care. For example, women seeking abortions a few European countries came up with an approach at some hope is here to stay from Barcelona. Lucy A. Benavidez has a story. Anna Vargas lives in a small town more than an hour and a half from Barcelona by train when she found out she was pregnant this February and decided to have an abortion. She worried about having to travel to Barcelona in the midst of the pandemic four years ago, when she had another abortion. She had to make that trip three times societies with how complicated this is When you make this decision, she says. You want it to be over as quickly as possible. You don't want to have to travel much, or explain yourself to others. In Spain, there is a mandatory three day waiting period for people seeking abortions. That means patients have to go into the clinic to fill out paperwork and then again three days later for the actual procedure. Depending on the pregnancy. There can be more appointments. The legislation in Spain's northeast region of Catalonia, which has its own autonomous government has allowed women seeking abortions to carry out every appointment except for the abortion itself Online, essentially reducing the number of in person visits to one. Varga says that for her, this made a huge difference, especially that is not going to came in. There was nothing like my previous experience, she says. This time it was easier and more anonymous and even quicker. To facilitate the process Variants sought help from a reproductive healthcare organization. The youth Center for Sexuality is in a quiet Barcelona neighborhood. They provide support and services for sexual and reproductive health care needs. This is a nurse there, she says Requests for abortion services nearly doubled in the first six months of the pandemic. You must have got the message. The million we received more than 400 calls between January and September of 2020, she says, compared to 250 for the same period the year before. That's not necessarily because more people were seeking abortions parentis ads But because health care clinics were overwhelmed with coronavirus patients, so people were sorted to centers like this one. She says 82% of the abortions carried out during those months or through telemedicine. We want this measure to stay in place permanently, she says. Because it makes abortion more accessible for people living in towns with limited services. Baran echoes what many abortion rights activists across Europe are saying after more than a year of seeing results from abortion, telemedicine. This is in countries like Ireland and France, which already had easier access to abortion. In Great Britain. The government went one step further by allowing people to have medical abortion pills sent to their homes as long as they're 10 weeks pregnant or less, while some right wing Christian groups criticized the move, calling them dangerous dy abortions. Gynecologists like Jonathan Lord say telemedicine can actually make abortions safer. Yeah, The evidence is just overwhelming and compelling that it is a better thing. It's kind. It's safer it. It's more effective. Lord and his colleagues at the British Society of Abortion Care providers looked at more than 50,000 medical abortions done last year through the UK's National Health Service. And found that the waiting period for people seeking abortions through telemedicine was significantly shorter than those going through in person appointments, so it means they have less distress but also the earlier stage. You do it at the few other complications and the less of an ordeal. It is. Earlier this year, the British government held a public consultation to study the possibility of permanently implementing abortion telemedicine. So far, it's the only country in Europe to do so. Yes, you look at the nurse Kallon Barrandov says women continue to face barriers when accessing abortion in Spain, where around 30% of people are completely opposed. Abortion rights activists are focusing on other priorities in terms of expanding access, like geographical disparities and mandatory waiting periods. And maybe a while. Berankis ads before Spain can think about permanently offering abortion telemedicine through its public health care system for the world, Lucy a been a view this Barcelona, Lucy is reporting was supported by the International Women's Media Foundation. You're listening to the world. Uh oh. Support for KQED comes from the Asian Art.

"Marco were manure with the world. Nearly all of the votes are counted in the presidential race in Peru is still too close to call. Socialist candidate Pedro Castillo is just barely out in front with the very smallest margins. The right wing Keiko Fujimori is not conceding. Yet. It seems likely that a legal battle is where things are headed. The world's Latin America correspondent Jorge Valencia is with us to get the latest or Hey, just how close are we talking here with these two candidates? Extremely close. Marco Pedro Castillo is ahead by not even a half of a percentage point, but almost all the votes have been counted. So it seems likely that he is going to win this contest. But as you as you mentioned his opponent, Keiko Fujimori, she's a right wing former member of Congress She is challenging some of the votes and at the same time, there are some 300,000 votes that are still being counted. And so this is so tight that these two factors could effectively flip the race in the other direction. Do we know how credible those claims of voting fraud are? They're not very credible. Right now. Fujimori's party is accusing Asti jewel supporters of stealing votes. But at least as of today Wednesday they have not provided very strong concrete evidence. And at the same time this race is just a couple of days ago, and there were international electoral observers. Who said that this race appear to be a very clean race. Now, Marco, This isn't the first time that Fujimori comes this close to becoming president. She lost by like a quarter of a percentage 0.5 years ago, so it seems very likely that there is going to be vigorous arguing and uncertainty over who officially will be the next president of paid off. Remind us who Pedro Castillo is what would be the significance of the presidency if he wins. Well, Pedro Cassie Jo would be the first president and at least 20 years to come from very humble, working class origins. He is from the mountains. His parents are illiterate peanut farmers he lived in his hometown, his entire life. He worked until recently as an elementary school teacher, and he was able in his campaign to tap Very directly into a division that there isn't but between rural Peru and urban Peru, mostly between Lima and rural Peru. In his public appearances, he shows up with a with a straw hat because you still farms Even his accent. His kids is something that is usually associated with farmers, but not with the political and the economic elite of the country. So regardless of what the official result of this race is, his campaign is a significant moment in the country's history, and it is something that political and economic elites It is something that they are very much paying attention to now. So either way, Jorge Peru is going to have a new president with the world's highest per capita covid mortality rate. What kind of Peru will the new president in Herod? Well, first of all, the new president will inherit a very much divided Peru. This race is extremely close and is symptomatic of that. Also, public health wise, the country is in a very difficult situation. People in the cities are disciplined about wearing not only masks but wearing double masks a lot of buildings or have requirements or face shields. And yet the country still has the highest per capita death rate in the world. At the same time, the country's economy has been battered by the pandemic way harder than most countries in Latin America. So the new president is going to face political challenges, public health challenges and economic challenges for the next five years. Very tough road ahead. The world's Latin America correspondent Jorge Valencia with the latest on the presidential election in Peru. Thank you very much for your welcome, Marco.

Protests mount in Peru after president's impeachment

"Martin Vizcarra on Monday has led to ever growing demonstrations. Mr Vizcarra was voted out of office by Congress accused of accepting bribes during a previous term. A state governor. He's been replaced by the head of the Peruvian Congress Manual Marina. He's made an appeal for calm. Mr. His car's supporters say Congress used the corruption allegations as a as a pretext to seize power five months before the next presidential election. I've been speaking to Peruvian investigative journalist Gustavo Gorriti. Person discovered was declared morally impaired on perpetual basis. The reason that was ostensibly taken is that in the course of the widespread investigation, some leaders and industry leaders also Off the lava Giotto case in Peru on Off the department off, Okay, We're in the south of Peru, but they were in the initial stages off investigation. There are not even formalized such a decisive course of action. Was taken by Congress in which about 50% have problems with prosecutors as well. Discoverer had only nine volts of heads on and with general elections in the mist, so they didn't have any real reason to between. Because there was an investigation going on in the proper way with the prosecutor's office on I think they wanted to prevent what would happen in inter solutions on do. They also work this subject off some investigations related to the lab. A gentle case on what they really wanted was to have power and to be able to disperse the prosecutor's team and all the rest. They've tried this before. Haven't made to try to get rid off Mr Fiske. Carla, that is correct. Try that. In September, they were close to shitting the majority. Now they were trying to get votes and half made lots and lots of promises among the different groups on now, you see that that sort of coalition is dissembling. Many of those are both for the impeachment are saying that they won't give a vote of confidence to the new Cabinet that has been put together. But it was important thing is that people understood perfectly. What was behind that. I'm the kind of mass protest rallies, marches, mobilization demonstrations that you have seen around has no president after the kind of massive mobilizations that brought about the authoritarian government of Alberto Fujimori in the year, 2000 And I would say that in some respects they're mobilized even higher numbers of people. What the the country why demonstrations toe two days ago were unprecedented in Lima. The police reacted with brutality, but it didn't deter the demonstrators. And those who've taken to the streets. What What do they want? They want the president to be reinstated to. They are not explicit about that. They are very explicit, very clear about wanted these people out of government what would be the solution afterwards? A couple of solutions have been trade out. The most logical one could be to reinstate Mr Reese, Kara and half his term and in the normal way next July. He would have a month off government again a general election to supervise and carry out And then the other most important thing. True continue the country wide mobilization and actions against the covet against the pandemic on to prevent a second way as the one that is bringing so much havoc in Europe. And if that happened in Europe, if it good come now to Peru, and you have to understand with with all this mass demonstrations in the streets and on that the percentage of contagion would grow tremendously.

"In two thousand, you're assigned to Peru, so jet deputy chief of mission at the US embassy. This engendered a huge brouhaha because you hadn't got come through the foreign service. Why was that such a. Yeah, I was a civil service at St. because my husband's work was domestic, and I chose to be a civil servant, and I knew that that meant I wasn't going to serve in some of the same positions that foreign service officers do as they come up through the ranks. But I was asked to be the DC 'em in Peru, by by one of my bosses who became the ambassador, and my response was yes as I have so many other times when people have asked me to do something and the department in his personnel system said, we can do this. This is within the scope of our collective bargaining agreement with the American foreign service association Apso or the American service association did not see it the same way. And the argument they made, which I understood was look. We wouldn't care if he were going to be an ambassador, lots of non foreign service people become embassador, but DCM deputy chief of mission is often the highest position we can aspire to, and it should not be available to civil servants. So I arrived in Peru because the director general and others at the State Department said you're approved. You can go with my husband who was telecommuting from EPA an eleven month old, a three year old and two months later, the foreign service grievance board said you have to leave, and it was a pretty eventful time. This wasn't a any sort of idol of point. This was just as Fujimori was sort of collapsing his administration when the videos that his spy master had made were beginning to be revealed revealing bribes and corruption up and down the Peruvian political elite roiling. The waters resulting ultimately in Montesinos the spymaster fleeing to Venezuela briefly, and ultimately Fujimori fleeing to Japan to his home country. Knowing that Japan did not extradite its nationals, and he had dual citizenship. There was a truth and reconciliation there. There was alternately a commission, but we were involved deeply in what was called the Windsor process, which the case of Fujimori's shutting down congress.
