Pressured in the streets by a wave of protests, the new president of Peru, Dina Boluarte, said this Monday (12) that she will present a bill to Congress to bring forward the elections to 2024 – in the country, presidential terms last five years, so that Boluarte would remain in the post until 2026.

In a message to the population shown on TV, the former deputy of Pedro Castillo, arrested after a failed coup d’état attempt, said she was complying with the will of the citizenry and also announced the establishment of a state of emergency in the country to “recover the control of internal order”.
