Pedro Castillo was sworn in on Wednesday as president of Peru during a ceremony in the Congress in Lima, after weeks of uncertainty following his defeat of a right-wing rival in a hard-fought presidential runoff. “It is the first time that our country will be governed by a peasant, a person who, like many Peruvians, belongs to the sectors oppressed for so many centuries,” Castillo said in his first speech as president. #Peru #President
