Think the US election season is crazy? Check out whatís happening in Peru

Peruís presidential elections are at risk of descending into farce after authorities here yanked two of the leading five candidates from the race.

The Special Electoral Tribunal (JEE by its Spanish initials) ruled that second-placed Julio Guzman hadn't legally registered his candidacy last year, because his nomination failed to comply with the minutiae of complex red tape.

In a separate ruling, it upheld an accusation that fourth-placed Cesar Acuna had broken a new electoral law by handing out money to voters.

The pair had until Monday to appeal the decision, which both of them were doing. Another panel, the National Electoral Tribunal (JNE), now has until Thursday to make a final decision. Experts believe the JNE will likely uphold the lower courtís decision.
