LIMA (Reuters) – Peruvian lawmakers on Thursday presented a new motion to oust President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski for allegedly lying about ties to Brazilian builder Odebrecht.
The motion, presented in a document seen by Reuters, was signed by 29 lawmakers while at least 87 votes would be needed to impeach Kuczynski. A previous effort to remove him in December came up short and Kuczynski denies wrongdoing.
A vote on the new motion has not yet been scheduled.
