Ollanta Moisés Humala Tasso (Spanish pronunciation: [oˈʎanta uˈmala]; born 27 June 1962) is a Peruvian politician. He was the 65th President of Peru from 2011 to 2016. Humala lost the 2006 presidential election and eventually won the 2011 presidential election in a run-off vote. He was elected as President of Peru in the second round, defeating Keiko Fujimori (daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori).

Humala was arrested by Peruvian authorities in July 2017 for illegally accepting bribes and awaits a corruption trial.
