The Government of Peru has added a new obstacle this Thursday, after the Peru Libre (PL) party, which brought Pedro Castillo to the presidency, I call to his block of congressmen to not give the vote of confidence to the Executive to establish his new cabinet.
In the midst of strong internal tensions, the left-wing political space issued a statement through the Twitter account of its secretary general, Vladimir Cerrón, in which it questions the Castillo government about the composition of its new team, since it considers that it represents a “political turn” towards the “center right”.
“This composition is made up of parties without registration, supported by North American NGOs, who have co-governed with the last four governments and now with the current one, “says the text.
“Extraordinary National Assembly: Peru Libre he will not give a vote of confidence to the cabinet, he announces expulsions and recomposition of his bench, “says Cerrón in his tweet.
According to the position of the party, in the new Cabinet that Castillo formed the “caviar” representatives increased, as leftist politicians who come from wealthy families are called in the country.
In the second point of the statement, the assembly rejects the designations of Dina Boluarte in the Ministry of Development and Bettsy Chávez, in the Labor portfolio, because, although they are party members, the decision “It is not born from a party or bench proposalbut of strictly individualistic acts. ”
On the other hand, PL points out that the party will not “subject its political conduct to the conditioning of work spaces, since it could not apply a program loyal to the people.”
The new Cabinet was restructured by the Pedro Castillo government last week, amid opposition pressure to remove several officials. The president himself acknowledged that he accepted the resignation of the former president of the Council of Ministers, Guido Bellido, to “guarantee the governability of the country.”
The former official was being harshly criticized by the opposition – and by various government allies – from the time of his appointment, just over two months ago. He was accused of misogyny and homophobia due to past statements on social networks, and was also questioned for his strong support for Cerrón, investigated for alleged corruption.
Peru Libre needs at least 66 votes in favor in Congress to win support for the new cabinet. It only has 37 of the 130 seats in Congress, but its own legislators would not accompany the government, which must comply with that constitutional mandate to keep its brand-new officials.
