Elections

Peru Wins (Spanish: Gana Perú) is a left-wing political party in Peru formed as an alliance for the general election, 2011, dominated by the Peruvian Nationalist Party and led by presidential candidate Ollanta Humala.

Constituent Parties

In the 2006 election, the Nationalist Party could not register. That is why they formed an alliance with the moderate Union for Peru (UPP), presenting PNP-leader Humala as UPP's candidate. The alliance split a short time after the elections and the Nationalists sat on their own bench in Congress. PCP and PSR were parts of the Broad Left Front.

In the congressional election on April 10, the alliance won 25.27% of the popular vote and 47 of 130 seats, making them the strongest force. In the elections for the five Peruvian members of the Andean Parliament, they won 27.02% and two representatives: Hilaria Supa and Alberto Adrianzén.

Presidential candidate Olanta Humala won 31.7% of the votes. As the first-placed he could qualify for the run-off election. Eventually, he won the second round against right-wing candidate Keiko Fujimori with 51.5% of the votes.

Peru Wins has formed a majority coalition in Congress with the Possible Peru Alliance, the centrist group of ex-president Alejandro Toledo.[2]

After his inauguration on 28 July 2011, Humala appointed a cabinet mainly consisting of moderate and established experts. This cleared up the fears that Peru could radically shift to the left.[3]

All 47 congressmen elected on the party's lists have joined the Nationalist Peru Wins parliamentary group.
