Peru Prez wins confidence vote; revives debate over anti-corruption measures

President Vizcarra, who succeeded disgraced ex-president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski a year ago won by 77 votes to 44 with three abstentions. Vizcarra had threatened to dissolve parliament and force new elections unless lawmakers backed his anti-graft proposals.

Kuczynski stepped down last year following allegations of bribe-taking as part of the continent-wide Odebrecht corruption scandal that has embroiled three other Peruvian former presidents.
