Popular Force, led by Fujimori's 42-year-old daughter Keiko, who was a close runner-up to Kuczynski last year, has 71 seats out of 130 in Peru's single-chamber legislature — despite only receiving 36 percent of the popular vote. It has been using that majority to destabilize the government and other public institutions, including sacking ministers on what most commentators regard as spurious grounds.
LIMA, Perú – Dating to around 2,000 B.C., the mysterious murals at the Ventarrón archeological site along Perú’s northern coast are thought to be the oldest in the Americas. But this month, just a decade after their discovery, the ancient paintings of abstract designs and a deer caught in a net were badly damaged when farmers’ fires to clear neighboring fields of sugar cane stumps ran out of control.
As vice president of Ecuador, Lenín Moreno was always a loyal number two to Rafael Correa – able to forge a more conciliatory style than his polarizing mentor, but adroit enough to avoid targeting the president with even implicit criticism. No wonder then that when he termed out earlier this year, Correa anointed Moreno as his replacement ahead of presidential elections last February.
El Comercio, one of Peru's main papers, leads on pre-trial jailing of its principal shareholder in connection with Odebrecht corruption. Huge editorial advance compared to 2011 when El Comercio's election coverage bent over backwards to favor Keiko Fujimori's presidential bid. https://t.co/2BnyNhu9BH
Devida, Peruvian government's anti-narcotics agency, declares success after area under coca cultivation only grew 9% over last year, in other words a smaller rise than in Bolivia or Colombia: https://t.co/uGs1DRsaHm
Some of Peru's most powerful businessmen just got jailed. Pre-trial detention for allegedly paying, with Brazilian partner Odebrecht, millions of $$$ in bribes to politicians in order to win public construction projects.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
