Opposition aims to impeach Peru’s President after FM’s resignation

Opposition aims to impeach Peru’s President after FM’s resignation

Lima, Aug 18 (Prensa Latina) Peruvian parliamentarian Jaime Quito stated on Wednesday that, after the resignation of Hector Bejar from the post of foreign minister, the right-wing opposition demands further ministerial changes and aims at the deposition of President Pedro Castillo.

Quito, belonging to the governing Peru Libre Party (PPL), pointed out that this is the goal of the Congress (parliament), in which right-wing parties have a majority, and those with extreme positions are taking the initiative.

‘The problem was not Bejar, the problem for the opposition sectors is the Government,’ and there are already two motions that pave the way to the impeachment of the president.

The MP noted that one of the projects, of the neo-liberal group Avanza Pais, proposes to declare the appointment of the ministerial cabinet as an ‘immoral act.’

That would give rise at the appropriate time to depose the president for ‘permanent moral incapacity’, a vague motivation that can be invoked by the Parliament to dismiss a governor, according to the current Constitution.

‘I demand the opposition to let this Government work,’ which has not even been installed for three weeks, Quito demanded, commenting that the opponents should also refrain from subjecting the ministers to inquiries that may finish in censures (virtual dismissal).

That recourse was announced by former Navy chief Jorge Montoya, representing the extreme right wing Renovacion Popular (RP) party, who aims to ‘clean the cabinet of ministers who are undesirable.’
