Peru’s President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has quit over a vote-buying scandal.
He has denied wrongdoing but said on Wednesday that he did not want to be an obstacle to the country’s development.
Party leaders in Congress later agreed to accept President Kuczynski’s resignation. He had been facing an impeachment vote on Thursday.
Pressure has been growing after footage emerged of his allies offering opposition politicians financial rewards if they backed him in the vote.
