Volume 447: debated on Wednesday 14 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action she is taking towards ensuring that the Peruvian presidential elections are (a) free and fair and (b) subject to scrutiny from international observers. (73563)

We followed the Peruvian presidential election campaign closely through our embassy in Lima and we fully support the Peruvian Government’s efforts to ensure the elections were free and fair. An Electoral Observation Mission of the Organisation of American States monitored the second round of the elections on 4 June 2006, with the participation of some 100 international observers. The European Parliament also sent an observer mission.
