The president-elect of Peru, Pedro Castillo, takes office this Wednesday in the city of Lima. Shortly before the act began, the rural teacher reported that the names of his ministers, who were also expected to be sworn in on Wednesday, will not be known until Friday, which prolongs the uncertainty about the next cabinet. After overcoming the toughest elections in the recent history of the country, Castillo will become the successor of Francisco Sagasti, the president who assumed power on an interim basis after a chaotic week in November 2020 that began with the removal of Martín Vizcarra and continued with a short-lived passage through the presidency of Manuel Merino. The professor, from the Peru Libre party, was proclaimed the winner of the elections on July 20 after a very close contest in which he won 44.000 votes more than Keiko Fujimori, from Fuerza Popular.
