The news is out: [(Bloomberg) — A group of Peruvian lawmakers are making a fresh bid to impeach President Martin Vizcarra over bribery allegations, barely a month after an initial attempt to oust him over a separate graft case.
Lawmakers from four parties filed the motion late Tuesday, which accuses the president of receiving bribes and lying repeatedly to the country about the allegations. It seeks his ouster on the grounds of “permanent moral incapacity.”
Vizcarra is the second Peruvian leader facing impeachment proceedings in less than three years. His predecessor, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, resigned after an opposition lawmaker released videos that showed his allies apparently negotiating votes to stave off his ouster. Two other former presidents are under investigation for graft and another one is in prison.]
Hopefully Peru doesn’t have a senate like the USA.
