Peru voters demand corruption-free gov't

Peru tries to move on from a series of corruption scandals, but will an election end the political crisis?

    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.
