Peruvians have been voting to elect a new Congress after the previous one was dissolved by President Martín Vizcarra.

Mr Vizcarra took the drastic step in September, arguing that lawmakers were obstructing his anti-corruption agenda.

Exit polls suggested the new Congress will be fragmented with the biggest party Popular Action, gaining less than 12% of the vote.

The exit polls also indicate Popular Force, which was the dominant party in the last Congress, gained only 7%.

Popular Front is led by Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of the disgraced former President Alberto Fujimori.
