Peru thrown into constitutional CRISIS amid power struggle
Under Peru's law, Vizcarra is ENTITLED to dissolve congress if it rejects two votes of confidence in his administration. Whether or not two such votes have taken place is at the crux of the conflict between the executive and legislative branches.

Vizcarra contends a rejection vote during Kuczynski's administration counts as the first because he is continuing his predecessor's mandate. He argues that the second happened Monday when lawmakers proceeded with a vote to select new Constitutional Tribunal magistrates, defying his warning that he would interpret it as a vote against confidence.

Araoz announced her resignation from the vice presidency as well as the interim presidency. "I hope my resignation leads to...general elections as soon as possible for the good of the country," she said.
