Alejandro Toledo,

Peruvian opposition politician, ran an insurgent campaign that threatened to unseat President Alberto K. Fujimori. In the April election, Fujimori garnered 48.9% of the vote—just shy of the 50% required for victory. Toledo won 40.3%. Toledo dropped out of the race in May, weeks before the June runoff, saying the election was rigged in Fujimori's favor.
