Trial of Peruvian President after attempting to dissolve parliament | Abroad

Castillo accused of “moral incompetence”

Parliament deemed Castillo “morally incompetent” and therefore unfit to lead the country. Since 2018, two presidents have been fired for similar ethical incompetence.

Vice President Dina Polwart is Castillo’s new successor. She was appointed temporary chief around 4 p.m.

Castillo, a former teacher, unexpectedly won elections in Peru in 2021. Since taking office, the country has faced crises such as cabinet changes, corruption investigations and protests against his leadership.
