Headline: AMERICA/PERU – President Vizcarra removed from parliament, the country is politically destabilized
Lima – The Archbishop of Lima, Mgr. Carlos Castillo, said that the Congress lacked “a sense of proportion” when it removed President Vizcarra. This is “something very serious”. The Archbishop is referring to the impeachment of Peruvian President Martín Vizcarra on Monday evening, November 9th, after he was declared “morally incapable” by parliament, in connection with a corruption lawsuit against him for alleged bribes in 2014 when He was governor. The President of Parliament Manuel Merino, of the Popular Action party , succeeds Vizcarra as the new President of Peru before the Peruvian Congress with all members present.
