The Peruvian Congress unanimously approved the impeachment of President Pedro Castillo, accused of corruption, after he was tempted by a self-coup.
Hours before the vote, Castillo dissolved the Legislative and Judicial powers, called elections for a constituent assembly and decreed a state of exception, or that included a pick-up call. Crucially, the Armed Forces and the Police did not support the coup.
Castillo announced the measures, on the national television channel, hours before undergoing the third vote for his impeachment in Parliament, not with the majority opposition.
