Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra faces impeachment hearing after top court rejects his plea to delaying

A day after Peru’s constitutional court on September 17 rejected President Martin Vizcarra’s plea to cause a delay in congressional efforts to remove him from office, the Peruvian President on September 18 faced an impeachment vote.

Marianella Ledesma, the court’s President told that judges had voted by five to two votes to reject an urgent appeal by the country’s President to suspend a debate on whether to impeach him for “moral incapacity”.

As of the court’s denial over delaying congressional efforts to remove him from the office, Vizcarra faced the Congress where he has no party representation. And all of this political tension came amidst the time when the copper-rich Andean nation is facing an economic recession and one of the worst outbreaks of the novel Coronavirus infection.
