Fujimorazo
 n.— «The 1990 election of Alberto Fujimori, a political “outsider,” was an appeal by Peruvians for a strong hand at the helm as the country weathered the storms of economic chaos. Fujimori wasted little time in dissolving Congress and concentrating power in the executive branch, thus adding the term Fujimorazo (meaning a “self-coup”) to the region’s political lexicon.» —“Latin America: Search for a future” by Barbara Fraser, Paul Jeffrey National Catholic Reporter May 14, 2004.
