Financial Times Toledo pledges 'new Peru' after election victory: "Although his margin of victory was tighter than he would have hoped for, Mr Toledo said he would rule for all Peruvians. Despite fears of clashes between rival supporters, observers deemed the elections to have been fair and peaceful. Any potential tension was also defused by Mr García's decision to concede graciously only four hours after the polling stations closed. Hinting that he was ready to run again for the presidency in 2006, Mr García said his left-wing APRA party had been strengthened by a vote, which showed it had the support of nearly half the electorate." Garcia has to be the biggest winner of the political process -- from pariah to king-maker in six months.
