Peruvian President Dina Boluarte says elections may be held in December this year amid continuing protests in the country.
Peru president considers December election
Peruvian President Dina Boluarte says she is considering moving up general elections to December of this year as the Andean leader struggles to keep a hold on protests that have left dozens dead.
The change would need to be passed by Congress.
Boluarte said elections could come even sooner than December depending on how quickly the proposal was passed.
Congress is set to debate on Friday a proposal presented earlier by Boluarte to move to April 2024 general elections which are currently set for 2026.
