Peru shamans predict presidential election outcome

Traditional shamans in Peru gather to perform a ceremony to predict who will win their presidential election on June 6.

Shaking rattles and blowing smoke on pictures of Peru’s two candidates, shamans go to work.

They are trying to divine who will win a polarized run-off election set to take place next month. Opinion polls show the contest could be tight.

The race is between socialist front-runner Pedro Castillo and conservative Keiko Fujimori.

If Castillo wins, Peru could tilt sharply to the left.
He pledges to rewrite the constitution and make mining companies pay more tax.

His rival, Keiko Fujimori, is running for the third time.
