Peruvian Socialist Leader, Pedro Castillo, has widened his lead against right-wing rival, Keiko Fujimori in the country’s presidential election.

But Madam Fujimori, who is the daughter of ex-president Alberto Fujimori, says she will not concede due to alleged irregularities, without showing much proof.

In a response on Twitter, Castillo’s Free Peruparty rejected the allegations. The official count from Sunday’s election shows Castillo with 50.3 percent and Fujimori 49.7 percent, with about 95 percent of the vote counted.

Castillo had trailed overnight but started to take the lion’s share of ballots as the count progressed, on the back of a late surge of rural votes.
