President Martin Vizcarra on Thursday affirmed the four political-justice reform projects —submitted by the Executive Branch to Congress— have the same priority, and criticized the intention of delaying the political system changes for up to three years.
"Saying that we have to work promptly
and that we have three years to work on the political system is like saying 'the political system is going very well,' and we all know that's not the case," the Head of State expressed, alluding to the statements made by Congress Chairman Daniel Salaverry.
On Wednesday, Fuerza Popular party member Salaverry indicated the justice system reform is the top priority for Parliament, as it is an urgent issue for the country, whereas political changes
could be implemented in up to three years.
"The four projects have the exact same priority for the Executive Branch (…)," the President added.
If the Inca country does not rely on solid democratic institutions, then it will not achieve development
and its efforts to improve will not have the expected positive outcome, he said.
"(…) Everybody demands a referendum
and structural changes, not only within Congress, which are necessary,
but also structural changes in politics," he concluded.
Remarks were made during the Muni-Executive Power Meeting.
