Peruvian Prime Minister Walter Martos on Friday accused Congress of breaking the constitutional order of its plans to vote on a no-confidence vote against President Martín Vizcarra and ruled out plans for a “coup d’état”.

In an interview at the RPP station, Martos assured that the government is in favor of the investigation proceeding, with due process and to the last resort, and that it is justice that determines whether there is any responsibility on the part of the President there.
“But when Congress tries to use the audios to break the constitutional order, it is practically giving a coup for arbitrarily interpreting what the constitution says about the presidential vacancy,” he said. defended, according to the state authority Andina.
