Executive Branch more accountable?Edit

I strongly dissagree with this statement. The Toledo Administration scandal are by far a proof of this, and the corruption of both the Fujimori and Garcia Administrations are also part of that. I suggest that this should be solved by using another quote. Messhermit 02:07, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Note on ICJ jurisdictionEdit

Peru now seems to accept "compulsory ICJ jurisdiction with reservations" - since 7 July 2003. Please see "International Court of Justice Declarations Recognizing as Compulsory the Jurisdiction of the Court" (Scroll down to the section of "Peru" in the web page.) as well as "CIA The World Factbook - Peru."


This article appears to contradict itself. It says that Peru's constitution allows presidents one reelection, but also says that after Toledo's first and only adminstration, he could not run for office again. -- (talk) 11:30, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

The Peruvian Constitution allows one reelection but not consecutively. That is, a president cannot run while holding office, he has to wait for one term after his own before running again. --Victor12 (talk) 20:50, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Important noticeEdit

The government section of the "Outline of Peru" needs to be checked, corrected, and completed -- especially the subsections for the government branches.

When the country outlines were created, temporary data (that matched most of the countries but not all) was used to speed up the process. Those countries for which the temporary data does not match must be replaced with the correct information.

Please check that this country's outline is not in error.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact The Transhumanist .

Thank you.

Peru is not presidential but semi-presidentialEdit

While the President of Peru is head of state and head of government, all cabinet members are individually and collectively responsible to the legislature, according to Chapter VI of the Constitution. Quoting Dab14763 on Talk:List of countries by system of government:

--B.Lameira (talk) 19:23, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Additionally, for reference of an academic paper: Semi-Presidential Systems: Dual Executive And Mixed Authority Patterns with Peru being cited on pages 337 and 344. --B.Lameira (talk) 17:52, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

And, also quite recently, former Prime Minister Ana Jara and her cabinet were forced to resign due to a successful censure motion,[1] which would be impossible to happen in a pure presidential system! B.Lameira (talk) 23:26, 19 August 2017 (UTC)


Needs new info re: Presidential elections, 2016Edit

The page is out of date, listing "Latest elections" as those having taken place in 2011. I would have liked to add the info for the 2016 elections, but couldn't figure out how to maintain the same template formatting and such. I normally would have tried copy/pasting the HTML, then adjusting the info, but it doesn't work at all. Hopefully someone more Wikisavvy than I can update properly!
