Popular Force (Spanish: Fuerza Popular, FP),[3][4] until 2012 called Force 2011 (Spanish: Fuerza 2011),[5] is a conservative Fujimorista[1] political party in Peru. The party is led by Keiko Fujimori, congresswoman and daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori.

In the 2011 presidential election, Popular Force supported the candidacy of[6][7] Keiko Fujimori for President, Rafael Rey for First and Jaime Yoshiyama for Second Vice President. Their ticket won 23.55% of votes in the first round, but was defeated by Ollanta Humala's ticket in the runoff with 48.55%.

The party obtained 37 seats in the National Congress[8] and 1 seat in the Andean Parliament.

In the 2016 elections, the party won an absolute majority in Congress (36.3% of votes; 71 out of 130 seats). In the presidential vote however, party leader Keiko Fujimori was defeated again by a small margin, gaining 49.88% in the runoff against President-elect Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.
