Maxwell Cameron of the University of British Columbia, meanwhile, says that presidential candidate Alan Garcia is framing the second round of elections as a “choice between Chavez and Peru.” Lastly, but far from least, Gran Combo Club has two (ES) phenomenal posts (ES) covering bloggers’ reactions to the creeping influence of Evo Morales and Hugo Chavez in the Peruvian elections.
