Meanwhile, Forsyth promised to close down all stores where stolen cell phones are sold within the first 50 days of his administration.

In trafficability, López Aliaga proposed expanding the Metropolitan route and lowering the cost of pejaes. Forsyth promised “major road works”, such as the expansion of the Vía Expresa.

As for social programs, the Renovación Popular candidate said that will promote youth volunteering, while the applicant from Somos Perú proposed to control the delivery of food to the common pots.

Finally, López Aliaga lamented Urresti's absence and Forsyth added: “Don't run [Urresti]. Tell me when and where and I'll be there; in Collique, Comas, if you want. Don't worry: they won't rob you, I'll take care of you.”
