Flores Nano, Lourdes (1959–)

Lourdes Flores Nano is the first woman to be a major contender for the presidency of Peru. A lawyer by profession and a member of the Popular Christian Party (Partido Popular Cristiano, PPC), Flores was elected to the Lima provincial council in 1986 and 1989 and then served in congress from 1990 to 2000. As the presidential candidate of the National Unity electoral alliance, Flores barely missed making runoff elections in 2001 and 2006 that she might well have won. Flores has tried to lead the PPC back to its social Christian roots.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
