Keiko Fujimori said she would lead a “watchful” opposition

Peruvian presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori has conceded to rival Pedro Pablo Kuczynski in run-off elections.

Ms Fujimori promised in her concession speech on Friday that she would lead a “watchful” opposition.

She said her rival had won the run-off race through the support of “promoters of hate” and that official election results were “confusing.”

Ms Fujimori, 40, is the daughter of incarcerated ex-President Alberto Fujimori.

Mr Kuczynski on Thursday urged Peruvians to unite for the future of the country.
