Peru's political crisis appeared on the verge of resolution as its Congress on Monday cleared the way for an elder statesman and consensus candidate to become the country's third president in a week.

The 76-year-old engineer has not yet been sworn into office, but as head of Congress becomes the nation's chief of state by default. Peru currently has no president or vice president, making him next in line.

Here & Now's Tonya Mosley speaks with Robert Albro, research associate professor at the Center for Latin American & Latino Studies at American University.
