Peru Runoff, Part I: Economic or political, vying is tight between duo of candidates

Runoff of the Peruvian general election will be held on June 5, with 41-year-old populist once congresswoman Keiko Fujimori pitting against 77-year-old former World Bank economist, previous finance minister and cabinet chief Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.

During their final debate on May 30 in Lima, either side outlined a raft of reforms expected to help the fast growing economy in Latin America gain more speed.

Who is more reasonable? And who is more believable? The Peruvians have a lot to weigh in.
