PERU: President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski threatened yesterday to withdraw his resignation because the proposed congressional resolution accepting it accuses him of “betraying the fatherland.”
Mr Kuczynski quit before facing impeachment by MPs for allegedly taking bribes from Brazilian construction firm Odebrecht.
He tweeted that the language was “unacceptable.” The language was eventually removed.
ITALY: Parliament reconvened yesterday following this month’s elections, but no coalition deal is in sight.
The chauvinist Five Star Movement was the largest single party, while a far-right coalition was the largest bloc. Neither has enough MPs to govern alone.
Police earlier had to remove street art showing Five Star leader Luigi Di Maio and League chief Matteo Salvini kissing, though a mooted deal between them to divvy up parliamentary positions fell apart yesterday.

FRANCE: President Emmanuel Macron’s popularity has fallen even further, according to a poll published a day after mass strikes against his austerity policies rocked the country.

His tax increase on pensioners has caused his support among over-65s to fall below 50 per cent for the first time.
