Peru's new president Pedro Castillo sworn in

Al Jazeera, 29 Jul 2021
Peru's new President Pedro Castillo has been sworn in at the capital Lima.
Castillo's swearing-in follows weeks of uncertainty after a disputed election result. Castillo took a surprise first place in the first round of the presidential election in April.
Then in June, Castillo defeated Keiko Fujimori by just 44,000 votes in the runoff. She alleged irregularities, but the electoral body rejected her complaints.
Castillo's left-wing party wants to rewrite the constitution and address inequality.
Several foreign leaders are in Lima for the inauguration.
