    Peru’s Congress Approves To Remove Vote of Confidence

    The plenary of the Peruvian Congress approved on Monday, with 75 votes in favor, 46 against and zero abstentions, the constitutional reform bill to eliminate the vote of confidence to the cabinet of ministers.

    The initiative seeks to eliminate the obligation of each ministerial cabinet to request a vote of confidence before the Legislature when it is presented. 

    Thus modifying Article 130 of the current Constitution, which establishes that within 30 days after taking office, the President of the Council of Ministers must go to Congress together with his cabinet to present and discuss the policies of his administration.

    According to the reform, "this presentation does not give rise to any vote of confidence," so the Government will be in charge of appointing the Ministers of State.

    The National Representation approved, with 75 votes in favor, bills 206, 306 and 612. As it has not exceeded two thirds of the legal number of congressmen, it must be ratified by referendum, in accordance with the provisions of article 206 of the Constitution.

    Congressman Gudi Bellido proposed to return the opinion to the Constitution Committee before the debate. His proposal was rejected by the Congress. 

    This opinion was proposed by the Congressional Constitution Committee, chaired by the pro-Fujimori congressman Hernando Guerra, and was approved by the Constitution and Regulations Committee in February 2022.

    Previously, in 2021, the initiative had been promoted by the Popular Force party. At that time, it proposed the amendment of Articles 130, 132, 133 and 134 of the Constitution.
