The President of the Republic Francisco Sagasti reaffirmed that the general elections will be held on April 11, despite the perception of a disinformation campaign aimed at postponing them.

Thus, the statesman indicated that Peru is the country in Latin America in which people trust one another the least.

Concerning polling station members, the top official said that —if the State is not able to vaccinate them against COVID-19 prior to election day— the State will try to make them strictly follow the protocol defined by the electoral bodies for the voting day.

"We are assessing what else could be done for them, especially those with comorbidities," he said.
