Constitution

Elections for the Democratic Constituent Congress were held in Peru on 22 November 1992,[1] following a self-coup (known as the "autogolpe") by President Alberto Fujimori on 5 April.[2] Fujimori's Cambio 90 party won the elections with 44 of the 80 seats in the Congress.

The Congress drew up a new constitution, which was promulgated in 1993 after being approved in a referendum. The new constitution allowed for presidents to be re-elected, as well as making the Congress a unicameral legislature.
