Dina Ercilia Boluarte Zegarra (born 31 May 1962) is a Peruvian lawyer and politician who is the current President of Peru since 2022.[1] Before, she was the Vice President of Peru from 2021 to 2022.[2]

Boluarte is the first woman to become President of Peru.[3] She was sworn in following a failed self-coup d'état by President Pedro Castillo which caused his impeachment, removal from office, and arrest.
