After 10 hours of the session in the Peruvian Parliament, the legislature, dominated by right-wing opponents, denied the impeachment motion against President Pedro Castillo on an alleged accusation of moral incapacity to properly hold power. Castillo, despite criticizing the lack of evidence and concrete facts to carry out the impeachment procedure in parliament, decided to attend the session to show maximum respect for the constitutional state.

However, the promoters failed to reach the two-thirds of the votes (at least 87 votes) needed to remove the president as dictated by the Constitution. Thus, with 55 votes in favor, 54 against and 19 abstentions, Pedro Castillo remains as president of Peru.
