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