Peruvian President Pedro Castillo announced the dissolution of the Congress, which he accused of trying to overthrow the government, and the formation of an emergency government.

In his address to the nation, Pedro Castillo said that the Congress has been dissolved, the emergency government will rule the country as of today and a new constitution will be drafted within 9 months by holding elections for a new Congress.

Stating that Congress targeted his government, Castillo said, “Congress has destroyed the rule of law and democracy. It disrupted the balance of powers with the approval of the Constitutional Court to establish a ‘Congress dictatorship’.”

Castillo continued his words as follows:

“In response to citizen demand, we have decided to form a government of emergency to restore the rule of law and democracy, including the following measures: the temporary dissolution of Congress and the creation of an extraordinary emergency government. In no more than 9 months, organize elections as soon as possible for a new Congress with constituent powers to draft a new constitution. Until a new Congress is established, governance will continue through decrees. A nationwide curfew will be imposed from today from 22.00-04.00. The judiciary, the prosecutor’s office, the Constitutional Court and the National Council of Justice will be reorganized.”
