Former Peruvian President Pedro Castillo was arrested in December during Presidential Chaos in Peru. After that, so many problems were faced by the civilians because of not any preplan strategy used b the new government. This long-lasting political and social issue runs unrest as violence.
Dina Boluarte, vice president of Peru, ascents to the post of President, and Castillo is in jail.
With this self-coup, the nation’s top office changed into protests with South American nations, where you can see the political faltering. Both the economic and pandemic COVID impact can be seen in basic services including health, education, food items, and in other daily used things.
Castillo, the president in jail after not succeeding in the coup attempt, start his political career as a teachers’ union leader. He was chosen as president in 2021. If you want to know the economic history of Peru, from 1970 to 1980 to the brutal dictatorship of Alberto Fujimori who start the economic engine of the country, raised because of its natural resources of copper.
These poor conditions in Peru are responsible for the presidential crisis: protests activity like fire to the buildings closed highways, airports, and mines, and violence by the polices against civilians. Dozens lost their lives and several were injured because of the violent activity. Even the government of Peru is not capable to complete the demands of the public.
Elections In Peru
With these protests and other unclear ways, Peru’s Congress decided to move the election to December 2023, despite in coming days. The main reason for Peru’s recent conditions is its broken political system. After achieving powers Boluarte, start curfews and suspended the right to protests to back everything under control. The Public now saying that the president and the force overstepped their limits.
Peruvian Democracy When Fujimori was in Power
Peru also has a democratic period when the most famous Fujimori was in power in 1990, who is lead and an outsider. He was raised “out of nowhere,” according to Max Cameron, professor of comparative Latin American politics at the University of British Columbia’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs.
Running against the “patrician” novelist Mario Vargas-Llosa, Fujimori “seemed more like a man of the people,” Cameron said. “He had sold some property and bought a tractor, and drove around in this tractor with a trailer behind it, called it the Fujimobile, drove around the shantytowns of Peru, gathering popular support.”

He was the first Peruvian, who came with Shining Path, to start a guerrilla organization communist in 1970. These two finish the state violence against. With this, the economic conditions of the country ups, and Fujimori’s willingness gave him devoted leadership in his party. That’s why still we used “Fujimorismo” and “anti-Fujimorismo” words to state political stances. His daughter Keiko Fujimori is appointed as a potent political force. A statement regarding who can have the constitutional right to dissolve congress read it at Bloomberg:
While Peru’s president has the constitutional right to dissolve congress, it can only happen once lawmakers censure his cabinet twice. That didn’t happen and there is no constitutional justification for Castillo’s move

Toledo Orozco told Peru an “empty democracy.” Political parties are not interested in nations’ development but only in organizations with ideals, policy platforms, and infrastructure.
“The party of Castillo” — Peru Libre — “has never been in government, they don’t have the experience, so if you think that Castillo represents the left in Peru, the left has never been in power,” Moisés Arce, a professor of Latin American social sciences at Tulane University.“So they don’t have professionals, a workforce, that could be capable of creating or producing a good government.”
Peru’s Presidential Chaos Since 2016
After 2016, not even a single president completed their period like Castillo’s remaining term will be completed by Bolurate, which is going to finish in 2026. But now Boluarte announced the election in 2024, a couple of years ahead before the fixed time. Congress also approved it which is set for the last month of 2023.

The public also demands elections soon for the presidency and legislature. Immediate president Boluarte said that she is only completing her constitutional duty to remain in office and by staying in power.
“The use of impeachment so easily by Congress also frustrates people,” Hurtado said, “because before 2016, it’s not like we had that great policy implementation … but there was an understanding, I believe, that even the most unpopular president could get stuff done. There were some major reforms; you could observe the country was trying to expand the presence of the state, and there were major social programs being implemented. Since 2016, it just seems that very little has changed, and what was in place has deteriorated.” At Reuter’s official Twitter handle you can read about Peruvian President Dina Boluarte’s statement regarding elections:

Toledo Orozco said, “We need to take the conflict, the conflictive issues, out of bullets and back to politics.”
“The core of this conflict is that democracy does not only need economic growth,” Toledo Orozco said. “It needs to come with parties that address the needs, the demands of the masses. Democracies that do not address issues of representation, do not include the needs of the poorest, end up paying the price.” A request by Amnistía Internacional Perú to stop the supply of weapons if they really want to control the crisis:
#España es el principal suministrador de armas a Perú de la UE. Solicitamos al @SE_Comercio la suspensión inmediata de venta de material antidisturbios y armas por el riesgo de que fuerzas de seguridad las sigan usando para cometer violaciones de DDHH. https://t.co/SrGSiW83RZ
