Peru passes its "Law of Popular Consultation" in a unanimous vote

As mentioned yesterday in this post, Peru's congress was due to debate its new law of popular consultation yesterday and it did just that. But even better, the law project was passed with a unanimous vote, 113 to zip. 

For those potentially affected by this law we strongly advise a good reading of its contents, found right here (this is a late stage draft and we understand that two minor changes were made afterwards, but the important content is unaltered) because there's more than meets the eye to this soon-to-be new law (once Prez Ollanta has signed it) it seems. But for those of you who can't be bothered to read a whole chunk of Spanish legalese your author will do the reading for you and write up a summary of the thing in IKN121, out next Sunday.

After all, guy's gotta have a hobby, right?
