“The outcome of the country’s general election on April 9 may be uncertain, but many within Lima’s political and business elite are planning for a Humala victory” says the Financial Times. “A proponent of higher taxes and greater state involvement in the economy, Mr Humala is not a natural friend of business. But while some businessmen cling to hopes of a more traditional candidate winning, others are jockeying for position and trying to shape the policies of the next government.”
