Peru: Protests reported amid political crisis September 29, 30

Peru Alerte de sécurité

President Vizcarra dissolves Parliament in political crisis that has prompted two days of mobilization September 29, 30; more protests expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 1/10/2019, 12h00 until 6/10/2019, 11h59 (America/Lima). COUNTRY/REGION Peru, Lima

Event

President Martin Vizcarra announced he would dissolve Parliament on Monday, September 30, due to an impasse faced when attempting to pass legislation and implement anti-corruption efforts, which he ran his campaign on. Part of the impasse is related to the appointing of several magistrates to oversee Peru's justice system, candidates which the President claims would contradict this agenda. This decision prompts a snap election to be coordinated in the coming several days.

This decision was welcomed by Vizcarra's supporters, prompting thousands to gather in the streets of Lima on the same day.

In addition to these protests, Vizcarra's supporters gathered on Sunday, September 29, for a candlelight vigil in opposition to several magistrate candidates, notably so in front of Congress. A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions were reported.

Due to the political crisis currently facing the country, related protests called both by Vizcarra's supporters and the opposition, are possible in the coming several days amid a heightened security presence. Associated transportation disruptions are also likely.  

Advice

Individuals in Lima are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate associated transportation disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by local authorities.
