CORRECTED: Pollsters see Garcia win in Peruvian election

June 2, 2006

Please read in second paragraph … A University of Lima
poll showed Garcia taking 55.9 percent of the vote and Humala
44.1 percent … instead of … A University of Lima poll
showed Garcia taking 52.4 percent of the vote and Humala 47.6
percent.

A corrected story follows:

LIMA, Peru (Reuters) – Leftist former President Alan Garcia
is seen winning Peru’s presidential elections on Sunday, even
though his advantage over nationalist former army commander
Ollanta Humala has shrunk, pollsters said on Friday.

A University of Lima poll showed Garcia taking 55.9 percent
of the vote and Humala 44.1 percent while a CPI poll gave
Garcia 53.8 percent and Humala 46.2 percent.
