Even the parties with the most resources on the right seem to have lost the ambition to do real politics. In terms of ideology and public policy, nothing Iceland Phone Number List distinguishes a politician from Action Popular from one from Aliana por el Progress or Forza Popular. United by a tacit pact of mutual protection, impasse and one or another complaint in the Prosecutor's Office. It is not that citizenship is not alive. Peru is the country with the highest number of socio-environmental conflicts in the region3and it also has a high percentage of subnational authorities revoked for corruption4.
However, without politicians with ambitions of representation and with a centralist media structure, it is difficult for a Peruvian from urban or coastal Iceland Phone Number List areas to know what their compatriots from the south or east are demanding, and even less so that national coalitions are put together. They are not aware of the long trips Iceland Phone Number List by rural municipal authorities to the ministries in Lima to get more teachers for their schools or simply access to water. Nor do they know about citizen claims for overvalued Iceland Phone Number List works or embezzlement of budgets. A Peruvian from urban areas knows nothing until the television shows him a regional strike, a blocked highway or a group of "radicals" depicted as threats to national Iceland Phone Number List stability. Peru has grown in economic reserves and spending capacity, but it lacks empathy.
The press, mirror of the country? With a divided country, elections become the only time when everyone is equal; but can one be exercising Iceland Phone Number List democracy in a country that does not know itself? The nation's imaginary that Benedict Anderson spoke of is mainly represented by what we citizens of today can see in the mass media.

Since the first round of April 11, the media Iceland Phone Number List has tendentious coverage of electoral preferences, always giving more light to the nine versions of the right that participated in the contest. Of a total of 603 campaign interviews, Alberto Beingolea, of the Popular Christian Party (conservative), which for decades has had nothing "popular", was interviewed 121 times,5. The first did not reach 2% of the votes and the second currently occupies Pizarro's chair.
