New General Elections

NPR's Jon Miller reports from Lima, Peru on the aftermath of President Alberto Fujimori's announcement this weekend that he would resign and call for new general elections. His announcement came after the release of videotape showing Fujimori's intelligence chief apparently bribing an opposition congressman. Fujimori has also decided to de-activate the national intelligence service, the head of which has been linked to a variety of scandals over the past decade.
