Below is the complete list of Peru’s 130 legislators organized by party and state who will serve in Congress from 2016 through 2021.

Presidential frontrunner Keiko Fujimori’s right-wing populist party, Popular Force, took a majority of seats over five other political parties which qualified to be seated under Peru’s elections threshold. Fujimori is the favorite to defeat Pedro Pablo Kuczynski in Peru’s presidential runoff election on Sunday, June 5.

Popular Force took 73 seats, or 56%, of the 130-seat legislature. Veronika Mendoza’s left-wing Broad Front is the second-largest party with 20 seats, or 15%. Kuczynski’s center-right Peruvians for Change won 18 seats, or 14%.

Cesar Acuña’s centrist party, Alliance for Progress, took nine seats for 7%. Alfredo Barnechea’s center-left Popular Action party and Alan Garcia’s centrist APRA each won five seats, or 4% of total votes.

Congress 2016 to 2021

After losing the 2011 presidential runoff election, Fujimori spent the next five years reinforcing her Popular Force party in every small town and remote province in the country. In the 2016 election, Popular Force candidates won more than a third of the popular vote. The party is noted for its member discipline and solidarity.

Kuczynski’s Peruvians for Change party garnered over 307,000 votes more than Mendoza’s Broad Front, or 18% more of the latter’s total. However the distribution in Peru’s 26 represented regions yielded Broad Front two more seats in Congress.

Four political parties lost their legal status for failing to garner 5% of the national vote, including former President Alejandro Toledo’s Possible Peru, in an election which saw voters punish veteran politicians.

Facing low support in opinion polls, some parties opted out of the election in an effort to save their legal status. President Ollanta Humala’s Peruvian Nationalist Party and Lima mayor Luis Castañeda’s National Solidarity party sat out, while Lourdes Flores’s Popular Christian Party (PPC) entered an alliance with APRA to preserve its party inscription. The PPC met the threshold to remain a party but did not win one seat in Congress.

Jailed Cajamarca governor Gregorio Santos’s Direct Democracy lost its inscription despite garnering the most votes in the state home to Yanacocha, the world’s fourth-largest gold mine. The leftist anti-mining party would have won five seats in Congress, all from Cajamarca, if it had obtained the minimum 5% of the national vote.

Below are the congressmen organized by party and state. The next president and legislators will assume office on July 28.
