A survey confirmed here the division and the uncertainty about the humanitarian nature of the pardon, passed by majority, for ex-president Alberto Fujimori, as well as his alleged health serious condition.


Lima.- The survey, carried out by the pollster Ipsos, indicates that 56 percent of those surveyed supported the pardon, while 40 percent of every 100 surveyed reject it, although this latter percent does it in a massive way and with protests that yesterday continued in a demonstration of repudiation outside the clinic in which Fujimori remains.

The survey indicates that 63 percent of those surveyed doubts about the humanitarian nature that Kuczynski use to grant the pardon, and believe in a political negotiation instead.


That percent of people pointed out that Kuczynski negotiated the pardon so that a group of the party supporting Fujimori, Fuerza Popular, abstained from voting and thus avoided Kuczynski's dismissal for alleged corruption links with the Brazilian company Odebrecht.

Only 29 percent of the people surveyed believe he had the willingness to grant the pardon before his dismissal was considered, while the alleged agreement between Fuerza Popular and Kuczynski represents the main reason for the rejection of the pardon granted.

The main reason of those surveyed to support the pardon was that Fujimori is very sick, (58 percent), although 40 percent believe that his disease is related to his age, 79, and is not serious, and 9 percent believe he has no disease at all, something supported by famous oncologist Elmer Huerta and former Minister of Health Oscar Ugarte.

On the other hand, the survey indicates that support for President Kuczynski increased from 18 percent to 25 percent, compared to a survey carried out two weeks ago, which analyst Fernando Tuesta related to the support given by Fujimori's followers after the pardon.

According to Ipsos, support for leader of Fuerza Popular and daughter of Fujimori, Keiko Fujimori, fell in the same period from 39 percent to 29 percent, while her dissenting brother Kenji, one of those who saved Kuczynski from dismissal, went from 35 percent to 33 percent. (PL)
