We tourists tend to think of Peru in terms of breathtaking landscapes, friendly people, fabulous cuisine and holiday adventure. However while it is all of these things, Peru is also a “normal” country that faces the typical political, social and cultural challenges.
Early parliamentary elections were held in Peru today. The elections were called after President Martin Vizcarra dissolved the Congress in September 2019. The 130 members of Congress were elected in 25 multi-member constituencies using open list proportional representation. Shown here: voting in Ollantaytambo.
