Editor’s Note

Dear Members,
Welcome to the tenth issue of Tidings.
Politics in Latin America is never dull, this week it is Peru’s turn to light up the Andean cone.
Last week, President Martín Vizcarra was ousted from power following an impeachment vote in Congress and was quickly replaced by the Speaker of Congress, Manuel Merino.
The move was deeply unpopular with many Peruvians who protested in large numbers. As the protests turned violent Merino was forced to resign in less than a week.
Yesterday, a new president, Francisco Rafael Sagasti, was sworn in but only after Congress rejected Rocio Silva-Santisteban, a controversial former human rights activist. Third time lucky?
In the words of our Peruvian colleague Cecilia De Orbegoso, “Peru seems to have lost its compass, trapped in a chaotic power struggle thanks to a political class characterised by indolence and irresponsibility, putting the country at the edge of a social, political and economic abyss.”
With widespread unrest across LatAm this past year, are we approaching a Latin American Spring? We hope not.
As ever,
