RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The President of Peru, Pedro Castillo, tried to stop the crisis facing his government on Tuesday with the appointment of a new Council of Ministers after the resignation of Prime Minister Mirtha Vásquez. At the same time, the political opposition proposed to submit him to an impeachment trial in an attempt to remove him from office.
Castillo appointed congressman Héctor Valer to replace Vásquez, who resigned "due to the impossibility of reaching consensus for the country's benefit" after the President accepted the resignation of former prosecutor Avelino Guillén from the Ministry . . .
