Latinamerica Press For Peruís indigenous people, participating in politics is both an individual and a collective right: "Under electoral laws passed in March and May, 15 percent of the slots on candidate slates for the November municipal and regional elections are set aside for representatives of the 1,274 native communities in the Peruvian Amazon. The laws apply to 101 districts in 29 provinces, spread throughout 11 departments located entirely or partly in the Amazon basin." Latin America Press is based in Lima so it's a good source to follow for trends in Peru.
