Congressmen of three right-wing matches presented on Thursday to Parliament a petition for dismissal to leave the leftist Prester Castillo, who was only four months in power, alleging his supposed "moral disability" to exercise his functions.
With 28 firms, two more than those required to start the process before the Plenary of Congress, the motion of "Vacancia" was presented by congressmen of the parties advances country, popular strength and popular renovation, which represent a third of Parliament.
But his admission to debate in full is not guaranteed, because this step requires 40% of votes in favor among attending lawmakers. And to separate a president, 87 votes of the total of 130 congressmen are needed.
"The permanent moral disability of the President of the Republic, a citizen José Pedro Castillo, as established in paragraph 2 of Article 113 of the Political Constitution of Peru," says the text of the press and social networks says.
Castle, meanwhile, said he felt "quiet" after the presentation of the vacancy request in Parliament, according to EFE.
"I do not worry about political noises, because my people have chosen me, I have not chosen the mafia or corrupt. That's why I owe myself to the people, I'm calm," said the president in the Andean city of Jauja ( Center), where it came to inaugurate social works.
The proposal is promoted by Congressman Patricia Chirinos, Avanza Country, an organization that passed the economist Hernando de Soto as a presidential candidate at the elections of this year.
The Peruvian Unicameral Parliament is dominated by a right-wing opposition, while the FREE Peru Party party (Marxist) is the first minority with 37 votes.
The opposition leader and former presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori had announced last Friday that his party, popular strength, second bench of the Congress (24 votes), will support the request for dismissal.
"In Popular Force we believe that this government has been demonstrating a permanent inability to drive the country," Fujimori had said on Twitter.
The ultraraderechist popular renovation also supports the dismissal, for which he has convened a march this Saturday.
The possible destitution of castle round in the air from the next day of its choice, when the right-wing matches denounced fraud despite the endorsement given to the results by the electoral authorities and the observers of the OAS and the European Union.
Castle, who assumed the presidency on July 28 and whose mandate ended in July 2026, is the subject of criticism for its lack of course and constant ministerial crises. In less than 120 days of management he has changed to a dozen ministers and faces divisions in the coalition that supports him.
The presidential disapproval reaches 57%, according to an IPSOS survey released on November 14.
In November 2020 President Martín Vizcarra was stripped of power in an express process in Congress. And in March 2018, Pedro Pablo Kuczysnki resigned the presidency on the eve of a second attempt at dismissal.Date Of Update: 26 November 2021, 07:21
