Peru: Constitution Commission approves first reform bill submitted by Executive Branch

10:22 | Lima, Jun. 12.

Peruvian Congress' Constitution Commission approved —by a majority— the constitutional reform bill that modifies article 34 of the Magna Carta on the impediments to run for a popularly-elected post.

This proposal is part of the six bills included in the confidence motion introduced by the Executive Branch. Later, Parliament would deliver the corresponding confidence vote to the cabinet led by Prime Minister Salvador del Solar.

However, the commission members agreed to include a change in article 39 of the Constitution, so these people are also prohibited from holding public office through a position of trust.

The two modifications —which were voted separately— received 13 votes in favor, 3 against, and 1 abstention. 

On the occasion, he was joined by Justice and Human Rights Vicente Zeballos.
