With only a few hours of difference, two Andean presidents have overcome the parliamentary motions that endangered their permanence in power. The Peruvian Pedro Castillo, standard-bearer of the radical left that has moderate support, and the Ecuadorian Guillermo Lasso, conservative with the back of the center-left, got the approval of congressmen and parliamentarians
In the case of Peru, a country where remitting a president is relatively easy, castle was seen with water around the neck. "Brothers, End of the political crises and work together to achieve a fair and solidarity Peru. The people have entrusted us with their longings, we do not disappoint it," he was congratulated after saving agonizingly the first check of right-wing opposition against his presidency. .
Six votes separated those who presented the motion of the 52 seats necessary to force the Cajamarca Master to defend himself personally before the Parliament of the accusations that have been raised against him. Against the vacancy, 76 deputies were manifested and four abstained.
The officialism managed to turn around a vote that he had lost Sunday. First came the support of Vladimir Cerron, a leader of Peru free (PL) and narrow ally of continental revolutions, who despite the distancing he maintains with the government "Caviar" decided to avoid the fall of the former ally of him. "Fascism failed, the parliamentary coup was failed to democracy," he claimed enthusiastically after the vote, despite the fact that for days he contemplated the possibility of pushing the political vacuum to whom he himself urged as flag of PL in the presidential ones.
Definitive also proved the scarce impact of the second part of the Fourth Power television report, the program that turned against the President's wall with its research on the parallel headquarters of the private house in Breña, where Castillo has received businessmen and politicians, Something forbidden by law. In the local media he ran the rumor in recent hours that both journalists and fourth power producers have left the program.
Once the tide is stopped against, it was only necessary to discount support to the opponents. That was the castle himself, who gathered in an express manner with the different heads of the parties. During the meetings, made until midnight, investments would have been offered in some provinces in exchange for support, according to the rows of popular renovation (RP), one of the banks that supported the beginning of the impeachment.
"It's time to correct mistakes, president," he entitled the Republic, which maintains critical support to the government. The list of editorial demands of the diary is almost as long as opposition reproaches, which helps measure chaotic government action since four months ago castle will sit on the boardwatch. Since appointing "skilled and no history" officials to expel characters linked to corruption from their surroundings, going through the need to negotiate with political parties, transparency with the media (castle, weak in their media raids, does not offer interviews) , the "Total Transparency" in its offices in the Palace of Government and the "Unlock of Public Works and Paralyzed Investment Projects," among others.
In the past legislature, Peru saw how three of its presidents (Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, Martín Vizcarra and Manuel Merino) fell by processes of dismissal and by the pressure of the street. The previous presidents are in jail (Alberto Fujimori), have gone through it (Ollanta Humala), await its extradition from the US (Alejandro Toledo) or has been committed to avoid being imprisoned (Alan García).
Meanwhile, in Quito, the National Assembly exhorted Lasso to appear to explain about the scandal of Pandora's roles. "When one works transparently, the truth always prevails," the president emphasized after insuring the Comptroller of the State that had not violated the law with its investments abroad.Date Of Update: 08 December 2021, 14:50
