The President of the Republic Francisco Sagasti
has invited President-elect Pedro Castillo
to the Lima-based Government Palace to address issues of national interest, as well as those related to the transfer process.
"I called him yesterday at night to congratulate him (…) we had a very cordial dialogue; I invited him to the (Government) Palace; I invited him to my house to talk as soon as possible, indicating that we are very aware that the time we are going to have will be very short (for the transfer of power)," Mr. Sagasti expressed.
"This delay has meant that the torch relay period, instead of having a month and a half and running together, has been reduced to a few meters; we have to be very careful and supported by plenty of willingness so that the torch does not fall to the ground, and Peru continues to make progress in terms of vaccination
," he added.
