Alejandro Toledo officially withdrew Monday from the presidential runoff scheduled for May 28, accusing incumbent President Alberto Fujimori of rigging votes. Carlos Bringas of the National Election Board said the move gave Fujimori an automatic reelection victory. The full five-member board, however, did not announce its position. Legal expert Francisco Chirinos Soto said the Fujimori-dominated board would be violating the constitution if it declared him president without a second round.
