Congress of Peru has ousted President Martin Vizcarra on corruption charges. This caused immediate tension among the Andean people.
Martin Vizcarra said he would accept the congressional vote. Do not take any legal action against it.
“I am leaving the president’s palace today,” Vizcarra said at the president’s residence in Lima on Monday. I am going back home. ‘
Congressman Manuel Merino could take over the presidency on Tuesday. He (Marino) will be in charge until July 2021.
Merino has confirmed that the presidential vote will take place on April 11. Until then, everyone is urged to remain calm. “I have already announced the date of the election,” Merino said on local television.
The country’s lawmakers have been trying to impeach Martin Vijkara for months. Opposition parties have dominated the country’s Congress, with 105 of the 130 votes cast against Vijkara. That vote was 87 enough to impeach him.
Martin Vijkara called the allegations of corruption against him baseless and false. He warned before the impeachment on Monday that he would face unforeseen consequences if he was impeached. Vijkara will not be able to take part in the next election.
His supporters gathered in front of Plaza San Martin Lima to protest the impeachment of Martin Vizcarra. The police are keeping a close watch on them.
The Peruvian president has been accused of embezzling government funds. However, 57-year-old Peru President Martin Vizcarra has denied the allegations. He had no supporters in the fragmented Congress and had tense relations with lawmakers.
