Peter Castle | Congress: in the hands of the opposition if the president travels to the US for the UN general assembly | Congress of the Republic | United States | | POLITICS & More Breaking News


six weeks later to deny permission to attend the inauguration of Gustavo Petro in Colombia, the Congress evaluates this Thursday if it continues with the position of not allowing the president peter castle leave the country. Precisely, the president requested to travel to the United States, between September 18 and 22, in order to participate in the United Nations General Assembly.

In this regard, the spokesman for Renovación Popular, Jorge Montoya, affirmed, personally, that Castillo Terrones should not leave Peru, arguing that his legal situation has not changed compared to a month and a half ago. That is to say, he still faces six preliminary investigations in the National Prosecutor’s Office, four of them for alleged criminal organization.

Montoya said that Foreign Minister César Landa, who returned to office last Tuesday, is the one who should represent the country at the UN.

“In this case there will be no speech from Peru, not all countries offer it, we have a president who is questioned for serious acts of corruption, his situation has not changed and he generates a bad image,” he told El Comercio.

A similar position was held by the spokesman for Popular Action, Elvis Vergara, who said that “this is not the time” for the head of state to travel abroad.

He added that his bench will make a joint decision in the next few hours.

Congressman Luis Aragón (Popular Action), who disputed the presidency of Parliament earlier this week, believed that the president should attend New York, because the UN general assembly is an “important” forum.

From Peru Libre, congresswoman Margot Palacios considered that the Legislative Power should authorize Castillo Terrones’ departure from the country, because “he is the one who directs the foreign policy” of the nation.

In his turn, the spokesman for Integrity and Development, Carlos Zeballos, also spoke in favor of Parliament granting the permit.

“The president must leave, because he is the country’s representative to the UN. Important issues are going to be discussed and it is time to intertwine relationships. The last trip he did not go on has brought international repercussions, it does not look good. It would be necessary to see that the president has to guarantee the trip by being transparent with justice, ”he stressed to this newspaper.

Sources from the Somos Perú bench indicated that they have not yet analyzed the issue, but it is likely that they will decide to authorize Castillo’s trip.

Addition and subtraction…

With the votes of Free Peru (16), Magisterial Block (10), Democratic Change (5), Bicentennial Peru (5), Democratic Peru (6), Democratic Change-Together for Peru (5), Integrity and Development (6 ) and Somos Perú (4), the president would have 52 votes in favor of his request to leave the country.

He would need to add 14 adhesions.

So your trip to New York is in the hands of the opposition in Congress.


Parliamentarian Eduardo Salhuana (Alliance for Progress) stated, in a personal capacity, that Castillo should be given permission “due to the nature and importance” of the UN national assembly. Although he specified that he will abide by the final decision adopted by his bench.

From Fuerza Popular, Avanza País and Podemos Peru indicated to this newspaper that they have not yet taken a joint position.

During a visit to Cusco last Friday, President Castillo said that he hopes that Congress this time will approve his departure from the country and pointed out that Latin America and the world “did not see favorably” his absence from Colombia.

“I am sure that the Congress, given the experience it had previously, that not only Peru but Latin America and the world did not see this decision favorably, and I believe that one learns from mistakes. I hope you do it (grant permission) because we have a plan and we have meetings with sister countries and with businessmen”, he remarked.
