The orbital precession of a charged test body interacting with a charged and massive body, fixed in the origin, is obtained by means of an approximate solution to the motion equations for such a system. Once the precession is known, in order to fit the Mercury perihelion precession uncertainty, some analysis regarding the possible charges for the Sun and Mercury is made.
