Popular first lady

, February 20, 2013

Peru's President-elect Ollanta Humala's wife Nadine Heredia holds Samin, their five-month-old baby, as she arrives to attend a ceremony where Humala received his presidential credentials from the National Elections Board, in Lima, in this June 2011 file photo. Heredia's prominent role, which includes serving as a de facto spokeswoman for the government in public and weighing in on a range of policy issues behind the scenes, has made her more popular than Humala - so popular that she is widely viewed as his potential successor. The first lady is arguably the party's only viable candidate after Humala. She could become Peru's first female president if an anti-nepotism rule were struck down to allow her to run for office in 2016. Reuters/Mariana Bazo/Files (
