Keiko Sofía Fujimori Higuchi (born 1975)[1] is a Peruvian politician, daughter of former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori and Susana Higuchi. In August 1994 her father named her First Lady of Peru after stripping his estranged wife, Keiko's mother, of the title; she was the youngest First Lady in Peru and in the history of the Americas.

In 2004, Fujimori married Mark Villanella, an American citizen from Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. After over a year of residence in the United States, she returned to Peru to announce her father's candidacy in the April 2006 Peruvian presidential election, though he was forbidden to participate in any political activity until 2011 under a congressional ban. While in the United States Fujimori attended Columbia Business School in Manhattan for a year and a half and obtained a business degree from Boston University School of Management. In April 2006, while her father was detained in neighboring Chile, Fujimori was elected to the Peruvian Congress, obtaining the highest vote nationwide.[citation needed]

Presidential ambitions

Fujimori is widely expected to seek the Peruvian presidency in 2011, on a platform that includes an intent to issue a pardon to her father.[2] As of early 2009, she is leading in Peruvian presidential election polls.[3]
