Political party brought out of a decade's shadow in Peru: "[Former president Alan] Garcķa said APRA will not become an anti-government bloc, despite its strength. The party won nearly all the departments, Peru's equivalent of U.S. states, along the coast, and in areas that traditionally have spurned the party. It carried the highland department of Ayacucho, where the Maoist Shining Path got its start in 1980, and Arequipa, Peru's second most important department." APRA is the only real organized politcal force in the country so it was bound to pick up on opposition to the government. We'll see if it has learned any lessons from its five years of incompetence during the Garcia administration.
