Who is Humala?

A guest of honor attended the first formal meeting between Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez Frias and his political ally, Bolivia’s President Elect Evo Morales, his name is Ollanta Humala, the Peruvian candidate currently leading the presidential race scheduled for 09 April.

Morales and Chavez openly celebrated Ollanta's presence and predicted an electoral landslide in Peru that would strengthen their regional alliance.

Humala has a lot in common with Chavez. He ran a failed military rebellion against then President Alberto Fujimori and is running a nationalistic, anti-market, anti-American campaign.

Ollanta Humala is Chavez's latest investment and a potential member for the regional leftist presidential club. Ollanta Humala is Peru's next president.

Your posts are very assertive on Latin America's new political trend. After Chavez rose to power by democratic mechanisms, mind you, there is a new air in Latin American politics.

The right wing is losing space to the left and losing elections after elections. The few and wealthy elitist population can't see the forest because they are focusing on the trees--their greenbacks.

When Communism takes over, and that seems to be the trend, all these right elitists will be daydreaming their past riches somewhere in Downtown Miami.

I live in Panama and can see this happening first hand.

I seriously doubt communism is anywhere near the latin american region. You mistake leftish social democrats with radical socialists, I mean technically Bachelet is a socialist, something that is not always bad. To be concerned with the needs of the people rather than of the big corporations does not make you a posible communist. Lula is a good example, he is leftish but he's not a potential communist. Evo Morales is though, and that is the difference between a social democrat and a radical socialist. Something no one has taken the time to take notice.
