Former minister questions legality of action against Peru’s president

Lima, Dec 3 (Prensa Latina) Former Peruvian Minister of Defense Walter Ayala said on Friday that the far-right opposition is seeking any pretext to oust President Pedro Castillo, an action that is alien to constitutional proceedings.

Ayala made this comment based on a protection action that he filed before a judge so that he orders to stop the proceedings to oust Castillo, which started with the filing of a motion signed by legislators from the three far-right parties.

What the promoters of the ousting want to do “is seeking any excuse to overthrow the president,” thus breaking up the system of checks and balances between the powers of the State, the professor of constitutional law explained.

The removal can occur for practically any reason, accusing the president of a vague cause, permanent moral incapacity, because “regarding morality, what is moral for me can be something else for someone else because it is a subjective issue,” he said.

He questioned the validity of the grounds of the motion, whose admission to debate will be discussed by the plenary of the Congress of the Republic on Tuesday by invoking the appointment of ministers allegedly linked to terrorism or the financing of Castillo’s electoral campaign with funds allegedly coming from corruption.

“Both issues have to be processed as a constitutional violation, but not as grounds for removal,” the former minister said.
