- Elections in Peru
Peru, the people directly elect a head of state(the president) as well as a legislature. The president is elected by the people for a five year term. The unicameral Congress ("Congreso") has 120 members, also elected for a five-year term by proportional representation. Peru has a multi-partysystem, which effectively bars one party from becoming the sole influence in a decision-making process. As such, parties must work with one another to form coalition governments.The whole election process is held by the National Jury of Electionsand the National Office of Electoral Processes.
