Perus Lawmakers Propose To Impeach Incumbent President Boluarte

 Peruvian lawmakers, representing parties of the left political spectrum and ousted President Pedro Castillo's political party Free Peru, on Wednesday proposed to impeach incumbent President Dina Boluarte on the grounds of "permanent moral incompetence."

"We propose to impeach Dina Ercilia Boluarte Zegarra, the incumbent president of the Republic, on the grounds of permanent moral incompetence," lawmakers said in a motion published by La Republica newspaper.

Nationwide protests, the declaration of a state of emergency, the abuse of power by security forces against protesters, and 27 deaths from gunshot wounds during protests were cited in the motion as reasons for the president's impeachment.

"We assume that neither Mrs. Boluarte nor any of her cabinet ministers are willing to step down, even though our people continue to be literally and catastrophically massacred. There are no other terms to use," the document read.

The impeachment of Boluarte could be considered at a plenary meeting of the Peruvian Congress on Thursday.
