Peru President expects lawmakers to submit confidence vote

12:24 | Tacna (Tacna region), Jun. 3.

President Martin Vizcarra on Monday affirmed he expects lawmakers —who represent Peruvian citizens' will— to give his cabinet the vote of confidence in order to proceed with the political reform proposed by his administration.

The Peruvian Constitution allows an acting President to close Congress and call for new legislative elections if Parliament dismisses two cabinets.

As is known, the current Congress had already granted a no-confidence vote to a former cabinet in September 2017. At that time, Mr. Vizcarra was serving as Vice-President.
