Vizcarra puts an end to the confrontation with the block of Fujimori and dissolves the Congress

The vice-president of Peru Mercedes Rosalba Araoz , resigned on Tuesday, via Twitter, to his charge alleging that she had "broken the constitutional order of Peru". Happened hours after president Martin Vizcarrar dissolve the Parliament and call elections elegislativas. It is for this reason that the Government of Peru considered today that the resignation of Araoz was not effective because it was presented at a Congress that "does not exist", said the prime minister of peru, Vicente Zeballos . "From a policy perspective, and constitutional, she remains vice-president of Peru," he said Zeballos in the radio station RPP News commenting on the " resignation "irrevocable".

Zeballos emphasized, in that sense, that "she quit before the president of the Congress, and the Congress does not exist, has been dissolved," in the exercise of the constitutional prerogatives that the president has. "What is at exercise is the Standing Committee, she remains first vice president in these times", ratified.

The prime minister stated, in addition, the "provision" of Vizcarra to maintain a good relationship and engage in conversations with "more fluid" with Araoz, despite the fact that this took during the confusing day of the Monday of the charge of "acting president" that gave you a faction of the Congress, who rejects to have been dissolved, reports Efe.


The endless revelations of bribes from the construction company brazilian Odebrecht since 2001 until 2017, is one of the main reasons that the president Martin Vizcarra has decided to dissolve the Congress in Peru, because from that institution was blocked his initiatives, anti-corruption time and time again.

"the confrontation between The president Vizcarra and the Congress has its origin in the revelations of the case Lavajato and Lavajuez, which led the contractor to propose changes in the rules, policies, conduct a referendum to establish minimum conditions for the change, and in all such orders to the Congress, not him," said the ABC, the lawyer and political analyst, Ivan Lanegra.

Since the beginning of the revelations of the case "Lavajato" from Brazil that coincided with the revelations of the case "Lavajuez" and the network of corruption in the Supreme Court of peru and the office of the Prosecutor, began the prosecution of former presidents Alejandro Toledo (prisoner in the US); Alan Garcia (who committed suicide before being arrested in Lima); Ollanta Humala (a prisoner for nine months in Lima); Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (with house arrest and forced to resign the presidency) and the former presidential candidate, Keiko Sofia Fujimori, (dam since last October).

Both Keiko Sofia Fujimori as the late Alan García have a caucus of legislators which is in the majority in Congress and blocked more than once anti-corruption initiatives of the Government, such as, for example, to prevent the fire exfiscal of the nation, Peter Chavarry, who was part of the network of "necks white".

According to the 1993 Constitution, if the Congress rejects two questions of trust of the president, he has the power to dissolve Congress and call for elections.

Between today and tomorrow, it is expected that, from Curitiba in Brazil, a former Superintendent of Odebrecht, Jorge Barata reveal more "codinomes" of politicians bribed to give works to the all-powerful builder. On this occasion, tap the section of legislators who Odebrecht helped them to make their political campaigns, an issue that will cause more of a remezón.

The only country where they have been developed over the investigation of the case "Lavajato" outside of Brazil, Peru, and a clear example of this is the collaboration agreement between the construction company Odebrecht and the peruvian State endorsed by the judiciary. This agreement obligates the company to collaborate with information from its computer servers from the year 1990 until today and that all of its officials to declare all they know of the political class in the country.

Coup d'etat?

For lawyer, Juan de la Puente , the answer is no, and is based on the article 45 of the Constitution of peru, which states that "a coup occurs when someone claims the power for himself, and the president is calling for elections and is not taking any power for himself, has provided one of a measure provided for in our internal order for there to be an election and renew the representation in Congress".

"that Is why today the National Jury of Elections makes a constitutional interpretation, and validates the act, announces the process to January of 2020 because it believes that there is no coup d'état"; he added to the bridge.

- How to explain that this extreme measure of president Vizcarra you do not configure a coup?

Lanegra responds: "The government of president Vizcarra has dissolved the Congress by appealing to an allocation provided for in the Constitution. The government acts according to the provisions laid down in the magna carta, having summoned immediately to parliamentary elections, and recognizes the permanence of the permanent commission of the Congress"; at the time adding that "the other State institutions are functioning normally and the freedoms they are practicing without restriction. Therefore, we can speak of a political crisis, but not a coup".

"We are a presidential system and anomalous. The solution is a figure of the parliamentary regimes. And the other thing is that Peru is from the viceroyalty the country of the formality without reality. The forms are very important, but they should always be at the service of the public purposes that contain" added Lanegra.
