Former presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori introduced this Friday that her right-wing Popular Force celebration will signal the movement introduced the day earlier than by the third vp of Congress, Patricia Chirinos, to take away the president of Peru, Pedro Castillo, for “permanent moral incapacity”.
“At Fuerza Popular we believe that this government has been showing a permanent inability to lead the country. For this reason, the Popular Force bench has decided to sign the motion for presidential vacancy, ”Fujimori wrote on his official Twitter account.
The daughter and political inheritor of former President Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000), who misplaced final June within the second electoral spherical towards Castillo, added that “there are moments when political teams should outline their positions, past speeches, within the details”.
“The future of the country should not be subjected to political calculations, or votes. It is about principles and convictions ”, he declared.
Shortly afterwards, the Popular Force congressmen issued a statement in which they reaffirmed the position of their leader, considering a “ethical obligation” to support the presidential impeachment request given “the misgovernment” in which the country finds itself.
With these pronouncements, Fujimori’s party becomes the third political group to show its support for the request for the presidential impeachment that was shown on Thursday by parliamentarian Chirinos, from the right-wing formation Avanza País, led by economist Hernando de Soto.
The motion also has the support of the far-right Popular Renovation party, whose leader, Rafael López, was the first to raise the issue last Wednesday in a television interview in which he crossed out the Castillo government as “silly” and said that his dismissal and that of its vice president, Dina Boluarte, should be given “earlier than the tip of the yr.”
Parliamentarians from Avanza País, Fuerza Popular and Renovación Popular would collectively add 43 votes in the Peruvian Parliament, a figure that would far exceed the 26 required to formally present the motion, but would not be enough for admission to debate. (52) and less for approval (87).
“Attack on governance”
For the rest of the benches and the government itself, the impeachment proposal was received with surprise and they remarked that a measure of this type is only going to generate more political and economic instability in their country.
In fact, Chirinos showed his request just one day after the president of Congress, María del Carmen Alva, assured that the Legislative, dominated by the opposition, had not planned to promote a request for presidential vacancy against Castillo, who assumed the presidency on last July 28.
For this reason, after learning about the promotion of this initiative, the Prime Minister, Mirtha Vásquez, sent a letter to the President of Parliament to express her “shock and concern” and urge her to mark “distance from the sort of assaults towards governance.” that they can “signify assaults towards the favored will and subsequently towards democracy” of the country.
Vásquez insisted that, “within the midst of the deep disaster that impacts nearly all of Peruvians, it’s important to have minimal situations of stability to have the ability to handle the primary issues, which means a mutual collaboration between powers of the State.”
Less direct was President Castillo, who, without explicitly mentioning the impeachment requests, affirmed the day before before the Annual Conference of Executives (CADE) that “governance is constructed between everybody, not simply on one aspect.”
“It is built putting the interests of the country ahead, without obstacles, without restrictions, without infundies and without breaking the balance of powers. The useless confrontation has done a lot of damage to the country and has only generated frustration and mistrust in citizens, politicians and institutions ”, emphasised the president. EFE
