Popular search engine Google released their list of top searches, and revealed that Sergio Markarián, Omar Chehade and Ciro Castillo were among the top stories in Peru this year.
Uruguayan coach Sergio Markarián, who led the Peruvian soccer team to one of their best performances at the Copa America, was the most popular news story. Peruvian soccer player Jefferson Farfán was also one of the top searches, placing fifth on the list.
Vice-President Chehade, who was involved in a political scandal that caused him to be suspended for 120 days, was a distant second on the list.
Gana Perú, President Ollanta Humala’s political party was the third most searched story, while Perú Possible, ex-President Toledo’s party – was sixth on the list.
Ciro Castillo, the young Peruvian who went missing in the Colca Valley this year, was the ‘fastest rising person’ of the year, closely followed by presidential candidate Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.
