Peru’s parliament passes resolution to dismiss President Vizcara on suspicion of corruption

Peru’s parliament passes resolution to dismiss President Vizcara on suspicion of corruption November 10 at 1:36 p.m.

Peru’s parliament in South America has passed a resolution to dismiss President Vizcara on suspicion of accepting bribes from companies that placed orders for public works projects when he was governor, and further confusion is a concern in the future.

In Peru’s parliament, a resolution was submitted and deliberated against President Vizcara on suspicion of receiving large bribes from companies that ordered public works projects between 2011 and 2014, when he was governor of the southern province of Mokegua.

On September 9, Congress voted on a resolution to dismiss him, claiming that “there is no fact that he has received bribes and that it is the worst act that makes the public uneasy,” but in the end, it was passed in favor of more than two-thirds.

Mr. Biscara was appointed president in 2018 after former President Kuczynski resigned just before he was questioned about his involvement in corruption.

Since taking office, he has promoted anti-corruption campaigns and gained public support, while opposing opposition parties such as former President Fujimori, who was the majority in parliament at the time, and has submitted resolutions to congress several times.

In Peru, a provisional president will take office in the future, but with a presidential election scheduled for April next year, the eldest daughter of former President Fujimori, Keiko Fujimori, who was at odds with Mr. Biscara, is expected to run, and further confusion is also a concern.
