from lima

President pedro castillo kicked the board of democracy but the bet failed and that was sacked and imprisoned, he did it when he was Harassed by a right wing that sought to oust him and weakened by the failures of his government And he was accused of corruption. He has been replaced by the Vice President in the boulevard, who became the first woman in the country’s history to hold the presidency. Boluaarte called for a ceasefire and announced a government of national unity with the participation of “all political forces”. Minutes before his inauguration, Castillo was ousted by Congress with 101 votes in favor, only 6 against, and 10 abstentions for attempting an unconstitutional shutdown of Congress., which was described as an attempted coup. While Bolvarte was sworn in as President by Congress, Castillo was detained at a police station. performedThere isn’t much of a rush for and against Castillo. There was a fight between the two groups. The protesters demanded that Congress and the newly sworn-in president leave and that early general elections be called.

Terminal crisis for Castillo government This Wednesday afternoon on television the nation went berserk after a surprising message. still the president declared the dissolution of congress unconstitutional, He did this three hours before the start of the parliamentary session, in which the motion to dismiss him was to be debated and voted on. For “permanent moral turpitude” for allegations of corruption under investigation.

With Congress closed, Castillo also announced the start of an “extraordinary emergency government”, announced the judiciary and the national prosecutor’s office were investigating him in “reorganization” and called for a Constituent Assembly within nine months. announced. He said that until the Constituent Assembly was established, he would rule by decree laws., In what would be his last message as president, he ordered a curfew to begin this Wednesday at 10 p.m., which was not implemented because the president had fallen long before that time and was canceled by President Boluaarte.

conclusion of congress

Castillo was notoriously nervous as he read the brief message announcing his failed attempt to remain in office. He spoke for just over five minutes. The papers he had were trembling with the trembling of his hands. While announcing the closure of the Congress, he recalled repeated attempts by the right-wing parliamentary majority to oust him. And assured that crimes are charged without evidence. He accused the right-wing opposition of trying to establish a “parliamentary dictatorship”.

When Castillo delivered his message, there was great uncertainty whether the opposition would receive the 87 votes, two-thirds of Congress, needed to remove him that same day for “moral incapacity”. At that time, a former official in his government declared before a parliamentary oversight commission that he had received bribe payments and given part of that money to Castillo. Like other charges against the then President, it is about the testimony of a prisoner accused of corruption and who seeks judicial advantage with this testimony, such as gaining his freedom.

Apparently, Castillo’s calculations led him to believe that after that testimony the right-wingers who wanted to remove him would vote to do so, and he decided to launch himself to shut down Congress. However, given the speculations going on at the time about how that vote would go, it was unclear what the final result would be. Nothing was certain at that time. The night before, Castillo assured the country in another message that he respected democracy and would go to parliament to face impeachment proceedings against him.

The decision Castillo made was very wrong. he had a political suicide Television. The “extraordinary emergency government” did not last. Three hours after that attempt to unconstitutionally shut down Congress – the President can shut down Congress, but only if he denies the executive two votes of confidence, which did not happen – Castillo was deposed and imprisoned., While his dismissal was put to a vote in Congress and the result was sung, Castillo left the Government Palace. A rumor spread that he was on his way to the Mexican embassy to seek asylum, but was arrested and taken to a police station. His defeat was over. Criminal proceedings await him for attempted coup d’état, a crime that carries a penalty of between 10 and 20 years. The Mexican government has offered him asylum.

castillo’s lonely end

How Castillo announced the closure of Congress is incomprehensible Without support to back up that decision. He was left single soon after making that announcement. His ministers started resigning one after the other saying that he rejected what he described as a coup d’état. Castillo did not consult them before deciding to close Congress. All institutions rejected the coup attempt launched from the executive. For just over an hour there was uncertainty about what position the military would take, whether they would support Castillo with the closure of Congress or oppose it. The uncertainty broke out when the military announced that they would not follow Castillo’s decision to close Congress. Still the defeat of the president was over.

Fallen palace, agreed Presidency Dina Boluarte, He did this before Congress. “As we all know, there has been an attempted coup,” Boluaarte began his first message as president shortly after being sworn in. Earlier, he had already distanced himself from Castillo’s attempt to shut down parliament in a message on Twitter. Boluaarte congratulated that “all institutions” have rejected Castillo’s decision.

the truce that boluarte requests

“I assume the position of Constitutional Speaker being aware of the enormous responsibility that falls upon me. My first call is to call for the broadest unity of all Peruvians. It is up to us to talk, negotiate, reach an agreement, something that has been so impractical in recent months. I call for a comprehensive process of dialogue between all political forces, whether or not represented in Congress,” Bolluarte said in that first message as president.

“I urge a political struggle to establish a government of national unity,” he told legislators who continued to harass the Castillo government. It remains to be seen whether the right wing, which has been betting on Congress on instability and a coup against Castillo, is willing to give him that fight.

The new president announced “a cabinet of all blood where all democratic forces are represented.” Boluarte, 60, was little known in political circles until he became vice president at the hands of Castillo. She had been a member of Peru Libre (PL), the party that brought Castillo into government, but was expelled a few months ago. takes office as president without a party supporting him, without a bench of his own, was faced with the PL, which was his party, and with a parliamentary authority that had already shown that it was willing to do anything to protect its subordinate interests. this is complex.
