The Free Peru Party issued a statement, released by its secretary general Vladimir Cerrón, in which they announced that they agreed to invoke the bench not to give the vote of confidence to the cabinet led by Mirtha Vásquez, also announcing expulsions and recomposition of the ruling bench.
The match Free Peru indicates that there is a shift towards the “center right” of the president’s government Pedro Castillo and his cabinet. “This composition is made up of parties without registration, supported by North American NGOs, who have co-governed with the last four governments and now with the current one.”
Pedro Castillo heads a government of a “left coalition”, as the political scientist Carlos Meléndez has pointed out. The coalition is made up of the party Free Peru, Nuevo Perú by Verónika Mendoza, a faction of the teachers’ union and independents.
Expulsions and recomposition of the bench
The militants of Peru Libre Dina Boluarte and Betssy Chávez are members of the Vásquez cabinet. However, for the Free Peru Party these are “strictly individualistic acts” and are not “born of a party or bench proposal.”
“We also condemn the leakage of information on the internal affairs of the Party and attacks against party unity, being very serious offenses according to the statute, so the respective disciplinary process will begin,” says the statement, alluding to the dissemination of the WhatsApp captures of the bank that revealed internal struggles.
In addition, the statement indicates that “the party’s born militant congressmen will have to rebuild their own bench, since the congressmen related to the teaching profession, who arrived with the Party, have their own party project. This does not imply a political collision, but a strategic reordering, to maintain good relations based on the values of sincerity and mutual respect ”.
The ruling party is made up of 37 congressmen, being the first minority in Congress, as allies they have the 5 parliamentarians of Together for Peru.
