Protesters clashed with police outside Peru’s Congress in the capital Lima to protest the removal of Martin Vizcarra and the swearing-in of Manuel Merino as president earlier on Tuesday.
Vizcarra remains popular, despite accusations of corruption that led to his impeachment.
In his message, Manuel Merino assured Peruvians elections will be held in April and that he will respect the rule of law.
