    Peruvians are hoping elections in January will restore faith in their political system.

    Last week President Martin Vizcarra dissolved the congress, accusing the opposition-controlled legislature of blocking corruption investigations.

    The majority of the electorate support the move, as they believe many politicians are linked to the Brazilian Odebrecht scandal.
