At least 87 votes will be necessary to approve the dismissal of President Dina Boluarte, who is accused of laundering money and ordering the repression of anti-government protests.
On Thursday, the Peruvian Congress plenary received a proposal for a vacancy motion against President Dina Boluarte, who is accused of moral disability for ordering national security forces to repress protests against her.
Left-wing politicians presented this proposal and recalled that at least 49 people died in clashes with the Police and army officers. Legislators will discuss the admission of the measure in the next plenary session, which will be on April 4.
"From my office, I have personally informed Boluarte about the vacancy motion," Congress President Jose Williams pointed out. Left-wing lawmakers had filed the motion in January, but conservative Congress members postponed the proposal’s formalization until now.
At least 87 votes will be necessary to approve the dismissal of Boluarte, who is also under investigation for laundering money to finance her 2021 campaign for Vice President.
