LIMA- Peru's opposition-controlled Congress ousted center-right President Pedro Pablo Kuczysnki's cabinet in a vote of no-confidence early on Friday, pitching the copper-producing Andean country into its worst political crisis in years.

In a gamble that will likely force him to scrap his plans to travel abroad later on Friday, Kuczynski had dared Congress on Wednesday to revoke its confidence in his cabinet if it insisted on forcing out his second education minister.

Under Peru's constitution, if Congress does not give deliver a president a vote of confidence for his cabinets twice, the president can summon new legislative elections.
