Peru: Lima Mayor trails in polls

Lima Mayor Susana Villaran is now facing some bad polls down 6-10 points. The election is Sunday and no liquor (and no campaigning in the city till Monday).

This Reuters story provides background on Villaran's troubles. Villaran is the first leftist to hold the mayoral job in the three decades, and she lost the support of some of the poorer residents. She has faced some criticism for her support for gay rights.
The article also highlights the role of the former Mayor Luis Castaneda, who is believed to pushing the recall.
