LIMA, Peru — The daughter of imprisoned Peruvian ex-President Alberto Fujimori Fujimori has conceded defeat to economist Pedro Pablo Kuczynski Godard in the country’s nation’s closest presidential election in five decades.

Keiko Fujimori Higuchi says she and her majority congressional bloc will lead a responsible opposition to President-elect Kuczynski Godard. She also accused the media Friday of promoting what she called a hate campaign against her candidacy.

Fujimori Higuchi was the heavy favorite to win the runoff but lost ground in the final stretch. Fellow conservative Kuczynski Godard warned during the campaign that the corruption and criminality associated with her father’s authoritarian rule could return if she were elected.

With 100 percent of ballots in, Kuczynski won 50.1 percent to Fujimori’s 49.9 percent.
