Peru: Voters head to the polls to elect new Congress

Peruvians headed to the polling station at the National University of San Marcos in Lima on Sunday, to elect a new Congress after the previous one was dissolved by President Martin Vizcarra in October. «What all Peruvians hope for is that there will be more tranquillity in the country,» one of the voters Eduardo said outside the polling station, adding «We are tired of being robbed, corruption is... Еще always above all.» The country has been swept by a wave of protests since the dissolution of the Congress in September 2019 with many accusing the president of a coup d'etat. The dissolution announcement came after lawmakers voted to replace almost all Constitutional Court judges despite the objections of Vizcarra, who presented a vote of confidence to the Congress in an attempt to prevent the replacement from taking place. Vizcarra dissolved the Congress after it appointed a new justice.
