(Reuters) – Peruvian President Dina Boluarte vowed on Sunday night to propose constitutional reform to move general elections to October 2023 if lawmakers do not reconsider a proposal to move the elections to later this year.

On Friday, lawmakers rejected a proposal that would have opened the door to holding elections this year.

If Congress does not reconsider the proposal on Monday, Boluarte said she would also introduce a bill that would require the next elected Congress to oversee a “total reform” of Peru’s 1993 constitution.
