The struggle for power in Peru: mutual accusations of the president and parliament in an attempted coup

Yesterday deputies of the congress by the majority of votes (101 out of 130) announced the impeachment of the President of Peru, Pedro Castillo. He is charged with a possible attempt to commit a coup d'etat in the country, charged with corruption, committing crimes against public administration bodies, exceeding his official powers, as well as encroaching on the constitutional order. After Castillo left the presidential palace, he went to the city administration of Lima, where he was detained.


Peruvian Attorney General Daniel Soria announced the initiation of a criminal investigation against the Peruvian leader.

The accusations against the president of committing crimes are groundless, as this undermines the foundations of the rule of law and democratic principles. The presidential administration decided to establish an emergency cabinet of ministers with the aim of temporarily dissolving the parliament in order to reorganize the legal system in the country and introduce a curfew throughout the territory

- Castillo said in an address to the Peruvians.

It should be noted that a number of ministers, including the army and law enforcement agencies, expressed disagreement in connection with the policy pursued by the ex-leader of Peru. Castillo himself, in response to this, decided to dissolve Parliament. However, the parliament in response to this deprived him of his presidential status, although, according to the law, he no longer had the authority to do so.

Recall that, according to the constitution, the powers of the head of state were transferred to Vice President Dina Boluarte, who has already taken the oath, while Castillo could face a prison term if he fails to be reinstated.

    The same scheme. A school teacher goes to power to disperse the oligarchs and nationalize enterprises. Refuses the presidential salary and other nishtyakov. drowns for the common people and all that. And as a result, the country is mired in corruption and he has a conflict with Congress. The world behind the scenes uses the same narratives...

      Or just one group of oligarchs pulls out his puppet, who pretends that he is with the people, but while the people are running after carrots, stealing ten times stronger than their predecessors

      So power is not only good intentions, the ability to command and other beautiful Lyalaki. First of all, this is work, and in any work, professionals are needed. That is why the most honest guys, once in power, fall smile in deaf dependence on those who can. As a result, they become vice-chairmen.

      It's like a chess game with one pawn against six queens... The worst thing about this game is that the rest of the pawns are always at a loss as to who to sink for, for the "upstart pawn" or for the "respected queens". Therefore, the outcome of this game is known long before it starts...

      And after a while it turns out that this teacher, as a new fighter against corruption, has earned more than the whole country in ten years, including all the oligarchs.

      At the same time, the vice-president, elected with him in conjunction, representing the same political force, became the president.

    Not quite of course on the topic, but recently I shook our Herbert Wilson: "Battleships in battle", there are more than one chapter devoted to South American showdowns of the century before last.
    The main impression: the guys were not bored!
    Everything is one to one, as it is now, nothing has changed over the past centuries.

    Are these events random? Judging by what is happening in the world, it does not seem like an accident ..

    A beautiful country, but corruption and juvenile delinquency!!! Children had to be hired for protection. Their talented children will be left without money, jewelry and watches in an instant. Buy, sell, horror! But the kindest people by nature.

    And against the elected president themselves, the accusations were put forward by powerful, and most importantly, a whole bunch. I wonder who is still the most mired in corruption: mestizos, which are 60,2%, Quechua Indians, which are 22,3%, or is it still whites, which are 5,9%? When the majority of the population of Peru has a positive attitude towards the United States, it is not difficult to guess under whose influence they are.

    A little strange situation. On the one hand, the Peruvian president can indeed dissolve the parliament if a number of conditions are met. As far as I know, in the event of a double resignation of the government. On the other hand, a comrade-in-arms of the removed president, a vice-president, from the same political force, became the new president.

    The feeling that this former teacher simply did not cope with his duties. Well, his eyes are a bit chaotic. Left, but very specific. With the party that nominated him, apparently, the relationship is tense.

    The third largest and fourth most populous country in South America has a unicameral parliament of only 130 deputies. For a country of 32 million people, it seems to me, not enough.

    In every country, there are groups of influential people. Sometimes they cannot be removed or removed completely without damaging the built system. For a complete change, physical elimination is needed, and this is unrealistic. Even if this is imagined in theory, others will take their places and everything will go in a circle. As long as people exist as a civilization, so many corrupt officials, dictators, rising prices, impoverishment of the population and other related things will exist.
