Right-wing lawmaker Keiko Fujimori's lead over left-wing nationalist Ollanta Humala appears to be growing ahead of Peru's 5 June presidential run-off, three polls have showed.

A Datum poll showed Fujimori getting 53.4 per cent of the vote and Humala 46.6 per cent.

Five polls in the past week have shown Ms Fujimori, the daughter of failed former President Alberto Fujimori, ahead of Humala, though in most cases her lead has been within the margin of error. A fifth of voters are undecided, making the result difficult to predict.
