Peru’s presidential hopefuls tossed their names into the hat this month, ahead of a vote in April.

Among those aspiring to the nation’s top post: Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of former president Alberto Fujimori, who is serving a 25-year prison sentence for violation of human rights during his decade-long regime. If elected, Keiko—currently a member of Peru’s legislature—would be the nation’s first woman leader, and at 36, its youngest.

But she will have to overcome the taint of the legacy of her father.
