Peru gets third President in one week amid political crisis

November 17, 2020

Peru’s Congress has chosen a 76-year-old former World Bank official, Francisco Sagasti, as the South American country’s new president, the third in a week. Sagasti was elected as lawmakers met to try to find a way out of a political crisis, sparked by the impeachment of one popular president and the resignation of his controversial successor amid protests which killed two people. Sagasti, a centrist, will serve as interim president until the end of July 2021, completing the mandate of Martin Vizcarra, who was impeached by Congress last Monday.
