Exit polls —conducted by Ipsos Peru— indicate that Peruvians have approved three constitutional reforms and rejected one at Sunday's referendum.
The reforms were proposed by the Executive Branch and subsequently approved by Congress.
Said proposals addressed lawmakers' reelection, bicameral legislature, political parties' private financing, and a reform of the National Council of the Magistracy (CNM) —renamed National Justice Board.
Below are the four referendum questions and results:
1. Do you approve the constitutional reform on the National Justice Board's composition and functions?
Yes: 87.1% / No: 12.9%
2. Do you approve the constitutional reform to regulate political parties' private financing?
Yes: 85% / No: 15%
3. Do you approve the constitutional reform to ban the immediate re-election of lawmakers?
Yes: 85.2% / No: 14.8%
4. Do you approve the constitutional reform to establish a bicameral parliamentary system at Congress?
Yes: 14.9% / No: 85.1%
The ballots for each question were counted separately, so voters had to tick each question separately as well.
Therefore, the Vizcarra administration intends to implement a positive change in Peru with these reforms.
The results were announced Sunday at 4:00 PM as polling stations were closing following local and regional elections held across the Inca country.
