Peru President seeks conciliation with opposition in crucial week

Lima, Mar 7 (Prensa Latina) Peruvian President Pedro Castillo on Monday called on Parliament to reach an agreement, in a week in which the far right-wing benches are trying to impeach him and the ministerial cabinet is seeking congressional ratification.

“We hope that both the Congress of the Republic and the government speak the same language” for the sake of the country’s development, the President said at a meeting with residents.

Meanwhile, the far right-wing congressman Jorge Montoya confirmed that he will present a motion on Tuesday to vacate (dismiss) the president for “permanent moral incapacity.”

Montoya affirmed that his motion has 40 votes, more than the 26 required to present it, but less than the 52 required to approve its admission for debate.

Legislator Darwin Espinoza, of the centrist party Acción Popular (AP), denounced pressures in favor of the measure proposed by the far right, which invokes the alleged involvement of Castillo in corruption cases, diverse attacks and errors and limitations of the government.

According to the congressman, opposed to the vacancy, the conservative president of Congress, María del Carmen Alva, from the same party “has called to tell me and not only me, but others” to vote for this option because the government is allegedly planning to carry out a coup d’état and close the Parliament.

Alva, she said, is “the most interested in a presidential vacancy” and several versions indicate that she aspires to replace Castillo, once the vice-president, Dina Boluarte, is removed and blocked.
