Dina Ercilia Boluarte Zegarra (born 31 May 1962) is a Peruvian lawyer and politician who is the current Vice President of Peru since 2021. She has been a RENIEC official since 2007.
She was born in Chalhuanca, Apurímac, on 31 May 1962. She graduated as a lawyer from the University of San Martín de Porres and did postgraduate studies at that university.
She is president of the Apurímac Club in Lima. She has worked at National Registry of Identification and Civil Status as a lawyer and head of the office since 2007.
A resident of the Surquillo of Lima, she was a mayoral candidate of the district in 2018 with the Free Peru party. She also participated in the extraordinary parliamentary elections in 2020 with Free Peru, though she did not obtain a congressional seat. She was part of the presidential ticket of Pedro Castillo, which was victorious in the run-off.
On 29 July 2021, she was appointed Minister of Development and Social Inclusion in the government of Pedro Castillo.
In January 2022, during an interview with La República, Boluarte stated that she never embraced the ideology of Free Peru. The party's general secretary, Vladimir Cerrón, subsequently expelled Boluarte from Free Peru and posted on Twitter, "Always loyal, traitors never." Cerrón also claimed that Boluarte's comment threatened party unity.
