Peru’s Boluarte to suggest new invoice to advance elections if Congress rejects present proposal

(Reuters) – Peruvian President Dina Boluarte on Sunday night promised to suggest a constitutional reform to maneuver common elections to October 2023 if lawmakers don’t rethink a proposal to advance the elections to later this yr.

Lawmakers on Friday rejected a proposal that may open the door to holding elections this yr.

If Congress doesn’t rethink the proposal on Monday, Boluarte stated she would additionally current a invoice that may require the subsequent elected Congress to supervise a “whole reform” of Peru’s 1993 structure.
