Peru: Far-right promotes parliamentary coup against Pedro Castillo | Four months after taking office, they are accused of “moral incompetence.”

From Lima

This Tuesday Peruvian democracy plays an important day. On that day, the far right will seek to recognize the demand for a start in Congress A brief process against President Pedro Castillo, who took office four months ago, Should remove him from office. The “permanent moral incapacity” of the rural teacher and trade unionists, whose surprise election victory led the government to the left and rocked power groups and right-wingers, is now accused of anticipating its downfall. Three groups of far-right, including Fujimori, are promoting a parliamentary coup, With important Media approval. These departments tried to ignore Castillo’s election victory against Keiko Fujimori, but they failed and maneuvered to remove him from the presidency from the first day of his government.

This requires 52 votes, 40 per cent of the 130 legislators want to give the green light to the debate on the President’s vacancy (removal) proposal for “moral incapacity”. If you get those votesCastillo will face a brief process in the coming days that will last two weeks and will not go into the events of the political investigation. The vague accusation of “moral impotence” should be interpreted as determining the interests of lawmakers. S.They need two-thirds, 87 votes, to carry out the coup, which was promoted by the far right. According to a study by the Institute of Peruvian Studies (IEP), 55 percent opposed the removal of Castillo, who won the presidency with 50.12 percent of the vote.

Recent calculations show that there is a good chance that those who plotted the 52-vote ban will bring Castillo to Congress and oust him. The three benches promoting the coup will add 43 votes and have the support of legislators from other right-wing groups. Failure to reach those 52 votes would mean a major defeat for the coup. Analysts agree that it would be difficult to get 87 votes if one were fired.. But Peruvian politics has already proven its appeal through unexpected results. The ruling Liberal Party (PL) and its progressive allies, Together for Peru, added 42 votes, two less than the 44 needed to neutralize the charge against Catillo. They will be joined by three votes of the centralist purple party that has already spoken out against the removal of the president. But lawmakers from the PL’s far – flung faction, led by its general secretary Vladimir Seron, who has accused Castillo of being neutral, have not rejected the coup plot and have said they “evaluate” it. The position they take, so that opens up the opportunity to support her, is suicide.
