— The centre-left peasant-turned-president, in power since 28 July 2021, was also arrested on a charge of rebellion after he sought to dissolve the legislative body and take unilateral control of the government. Vice President Dina Boluarte replaced Pedro Castillo and became the first female leader in the history of the republic. Lawmakers voted 101-6 with 10 abstentions to remove Castillo from office for reasons of "permanent moral incapacity". Federal prosecutors announced that Castillo had been arrested on the rebellion charge for allegedly violating constitutional order. Federal prosecutors are investigating six cases against Castillo, most of them for alleged corruption, under the theory that he had used his power to profit from public works. The first president to come from a poor farming community in the nation's history, Castillo arrived in the presidential palace last year without any political experience. He changed his cabinet five times during his year and a half in office, running through 60 different cabinet officials, leaving various government agencies paralyzed.
