LIMA — The future of Peru’s presidency hung in the balance as former investment banker Pedro Pablo Kuczynski held a razor-thin lead in Sunday’s election over Keiko Fujimori, daughter of an imprisoned authoritarian leader.

With 94 percent of votes processed by late Monday, Kuczynski’s lead over Fujimori narrowed to 0.56 percent in one of the Andean country’s tightest elections ever. Officials suggested it might take a few days to call a winner.

Ballots from far-flung provinces and the Peruvian diaspora were still outstanding, said Mariano Cucho, the head of the electoral office ONPE.

“Tomorrow we’ll be announcing a new update,” said Cucho.

Some ballots were also being challenged and will be reviewed by electoral authorities, with an appeals process taking up to a week.
