The president called a dialogue table in which representatives of Podemos Peru, Alianza para el Progreso, Partido Morado and Somos Perú will participate.

The president of Peru, Pedro Castillo, will receive this Friday at the Government Palace representatives of various political parties, in the context of the crisis aggravated by the request for vacancy against the president, which could end with his removal.

As reported by the local newspaper La República, the meeting will be attended by the leaders of the We Can Peru, Alliance for Progress, Purple Party and We Are Peru, all parties that in principle would not accompany the process promoted by three spaces on the right to unseat the head of state.

The Presidency reported that there will be meetings this Friday and also on Monday, and that issues such as economic reactivation, the fight against the pandemic, response actions against the earthquake that occurred in Amazonas and political stability and governance.

The request for vacancy against President Pedro Castillo for ‘moral incapacity’ was promoted in November by the conservative parties Fuerza Popular (FP), Avanza País and Renovación Popular (RP), although the intention of these sectors of the opposition to remove the teacher Rural power was expressed from the beginning of his administration, in July of this year.

While the negotiations in the unicameral Parliament advance, Castillo has indicated during a message to the nation that those who are behind the vacancy they did not accept the electoral result and “they have always sought to undermine the popular will”.

The sociologist and former Minister of Education of Peru, Nicolás Lynch Gamero, points to the coup character on the right that hinders the work of the Government. “The objective is to remove him, because they fear that Castillo with the program he announced and what he represents will affect their interests, especially economic interests.”

A defining vote

Next Tuesday will be a key day for the governance of Peru, since it will be defined whether the initiative that could end the mandate of the left-wing teacher advances.

The motion needs 52 votes out of 130 congressmen to proceed to a next phase, in which 87 votes would be required to achieve impeachment.

Besieged by the opposition, Pedro Castillo has had to modify since his inauguration several members of his Cabinet, questioned either for alleged acts of corruption or for their alleged links with left-wing extremist organizations such as Shining Path.

On the other hand, in recent days the president was denounced for maintaining unreported meetings with businessmen at their address in Lima. And the investigations are progressing for a cause in which he is accused of interference in the promotions of military personnel.
