Peru’s presidential candidate, Yohny Lescano, wants to deglobalize the country and make it the sole owner of copper-rich resources.

  • The move will boost local production and enable fair and impartial pricing for the country.
  • Lescano is a lawyer by profession and received extraordinary support from the people to rank second in polls in February, followed by the former soccer goalkeeper George Forsyth.
  • The presidential candidate wants to build a new mining cadastre that will enforce mineral resources' exploitation.
  • The 62-year-old Popular Action party’s representative will also review the US$5.0 billion project owned by Petroperu to modernize the Talara refinery.
  • The representative was also against Southern Copper’s Tia Maria copper project, which is already halted for more than ten years due to social conflicts.
