Peru: PPK may survive the vote on Thursday UPDATED

It's not over yet, folks. Rumours are swirling on the streets of Lima and one of them may mean PPK survives the no-confidence vote on Thursday. At this point it's still probable that PPK loses hs job, but the scenario has certainly changed since the feeling of fait accompli on Friday. The reason: For those who know the scene, the whisper is that Cesar Acuña will direct his nine APP members of congress to abstain from voting. In theory at least, that means the "PPK Out" vote gets to 85 when they need 87 to secure their victory.

Details in IKN448, subbers.


UPDATE: Due to PPK going on live TV tonight for an interview with one of the top political journalists in Peru, the IKN Weekly edition will go out late tonight.
