Economist Alejandro Toledo, ex-president of the Republic of Peru (2001-2006), leader of the Peruvian political party "Possible Peru", and likely presidential candidate for the elections of 2016, said to Peruvian reporters he will travel to India "to receive a Nobel Prize."
Toledo, who was participating in the 2015 Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors of the World Bank Group (WB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Lima, Peru, responded to an interview where he referred to his forthcoming award and his heavy international agenda.
"I'm going to China ... to India… I will receive a Nobel Prize in India ... a Nobel Prize called "Humanitarian Award," the ex-president told a reporter of RPP (Radio Programas del Peru), a Peruvian radio and television broadcasting company. After talking about his impending “Nobel Prize” the leader of Possible Peru, appeared visibly uncomfortable, then he struggled to correct himself and clarify that it was a humanitarian award to be received in India, reports RRP (in Spanish).
"From China to India, from India to the Club de Madrid, in Spain, then to Japan, from Japan to Lima," added the Peruvian politician, detailing his hectic international itinerary.
Mr. Toledo has expressed his intention of running for the Presidency of Peru in the 2016 General Election. However, the discovery of highly valued real estate properties he purchased using the name of his mother-in-law has caused Toledo falling in the polls. Currently, his level of approval is at 4 percent, close to the bottom among Peruvian presidential candidates, according to EleccionesenPeru (In Spanish).
