Happy Easter everyone!

As I mentioned yesterday, the presidential election process headed back to the dugout for a few days and the Easter bunny is getting some at-bats as a pinch-hitter. This weekend peruvians are headed for the church instead of polling stations.

My amigo Max Cameron is using the break to write up a good analysis on the composition of the next Peruvian Congress. His focus is on the increased influence of the Fujimoristas, who this year ran under the official name "Alliance For The Future" and their main goal: a comeback of Alberto Fujimori.
