President Castillo Installs a 'Government of Exception' in Peru

The impeachment process against Castillo was a clear — and deceitful — attempt to break with the Peruvian democratic order, but Castillo's actions are also unacceptable. He was not a trustworthy leader, and now this has become clearer than ever.
Castillo had long indicated that he wanted to abolish checks and balances to his power and polarize society, so Peru shouldn't have expected anything other than corruption scandals, violence, instability, and disaster from his administration. Fortunately, parliamentary efforts brought this nightmare to an end today.
There's a 50% chance that Peru's GDP per capita (PPP) will be $20.4K in 2030, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
