"There are spaces for dialogue, there are communication bridges, there is a need for a responsible consensus, there is the possibility of giving the people what they really want," Peru Libre congressman Waldemar Cerrón told CNN when asked about the postponement of the session. .

"There is a relative consensus on the advancement of the elections," added the parliamentarian, whose party, according to him, is proposing a referendum that defines the formation of a Constituent Assembly.

While Congress tries to find a political solution to the crisis that occurred after the departure of Pedro Castillo from the presidency, protesters continue in the streets demanding the resignation of President Dina Boluarte, the closure of Parliament, general elections as soon as possible and a new Constitution. .

According to the Ombudsman's Office, to date 58 people have died.
