Peru’s New Congress

In a first, Peruvians voted in a legislative election held separately from a presidential ballot. President Martin Vizcarra dissolved the legislature last year, amid an anti-corruption campaign. Michael Shifter spoke with CGTN’s Roee Ruttenberg about the vote and what it means for Peru going forward.
