Peru's President Vizcarra Threatens to Shut Down Congress Vizcarra took the drastic step to keep lawmakers from appointing up to six out of seven justices in the Constitutional Court (TC), a likely referee in any legal dispute between the government and Congress. However, the Congress scheduled the minister to the afternoon. The Congress scheduled the election of the new members to the Constitutional Court of Peru for September 30. The Members of the Congress are elected to serve the nation, legislate, control and represent our interests and aspirations. By July 2019, Peruvians had grown extremely tired of the vicious infighting and the different corruption charges raised, among other issues, against several members of congress. The Congress represents the plural opinion of the nation. Vizcarra’s announcement that he was sending a bill to congress to hold early general elections in 2020 was met with approval from the vast majority of the population, according to several polls.
The current Congress of Peru, sworn in after the 2020 elections, was elected after the dissolution of the previous Congress by President Martin Vizcarra, triggering the 2019 Peruvian constitutional crisis. The Congress of the Republic of Peru (Spanish: Congreso de la República) is the unicameral body that assumes legislative power in Peru. According to the results of an exit poll as well as of the quick-count conducted by a local news network America TV and the pollster Ipsos Peru, the new Congress of the Republic of Peru will be highly fragmented.
More than 25 million Peruvians went to polls on January 26 to elect the new members of the Congress. By Thursday, he had chosen a new cabinet. On September 30, the prime minister Salvador del Solar went to the Legislative Palace to request the vote of no confidence. Representatives of all races, creeds, ideologies, professions, and crafts are elected by democratic votes, on the basis of the people’s decision.
This statistic displays the number of Congress members of the Republic of Peru according to every congressional period starting from 1995 up to 2021. Though members of Congress still plan on taking the problem to Peru’s highest court, for now, it looks like Mr. Vizcarra has won.
Peru has been thrown into political crisis after President Martín Vizcarra made good on a threat to dissolve Congress unless lawmakers backed his anti-corruption reforms. New elections for Congress are planned for January 26.
