AME9803. LIMA (PERÚ), 11/12/2022.- Cientos de manifestantes, a favor de Pedro Castillo y en contra del Congreso, se enfrentan con miembros de la policía en las calles del centro, hoy en Lima (Perú). Las manifestaciones, que se han replicado en otras regiones del país, piden el adelanto de elecciones y la renuncia de Boluarte, que el pasado miércoles asumió el cargo tras la destitución por el Congreso de su antecesor Pedro Castillo, quien había dictado la disolución del Congreso, anunciado que conformaría un ejecutivo de emergencia, gobernaría por decreto, convocaría una asamblea constituyente y una reorganización del sistema judicial.
