Peru approves advancing the elections in 2024

The plenary session of the Peruvian Congress approved on Tuesday a project to advance general elections in the country for April 2024, with the objective that the mandate of the current authorities of the Executive and the Legislative conclude at the end of July of that year and not in the same month of 2026.

The project, which was presented by the president of the Constitutional Commission of the Congress, the Fujimori Hernando Guerra, received 93 votes in favor, 30 against and 1 abstention, in a first vote that must be endorsed in the next ordinary legislature.

In another sense. The president of Peru, Dina Boluarte, did not carry out this Tuesday the renewal of the cabinet of ministers, announced by herself last Sunday and in which she was going to appoint the new president of the Council of Ministers.

The Presidency's communications department announced late this Tuesday that the swearing-in ceremony for state ministers was going to take place "in the shortest possible time" on Tuesday, but five minutes later it announced that the ceremony was postponed for days later.

Boluarte assured this Sunday that he will change his prime minister, Pedro Angulo, whom he appointed last Saturday in the midst of a national crisis and who had not yet received the mandatory vote of confidence from Congress.
