Following an invitation by the Government of Peru and the National Board of Elections (JNE), the European Union deployed a team of 3 electoral experts to monitor the 2021 presidential, congressional and Andean Parliament elections.

The Mission made a comprehensive assessment of the different phases and components of the electoral process until their completion in accordance with existing international, regional and national standards, as well as good practices, and provided recommendations for the improvement of future elections.
