Peru’s President Manuel Merino

On Sunday, November 15, Just five days after taking office, Peru’s President Manuel Merino has  resigned, sparking wild street celebrations in the capital Lima.

“I want to let the whole country know that I’m resigning,” Merino said in a televised address, a day after a police crackdown on protesters left at least two people dead.

Protesters have since decried Merino’s rise to power. They accuse the legislature of staging a parliamentary coup.
