The Ministerial Cabinet feels optimistic about reaching an understanding with Congress a few weeks before its presentation at Parliament for a confidence vote, Prime Minister Cesar Villanueva affirmed.
Villanueva stressed the willingness of legislators from different parties, with whom he met in recent days to build a mature relationship between the Executive
and Legislative Branches.
"The initial approaches are encouraging, and we have perceived political parties' strong willingness. We are always optimistic that we can get along with Congress
," he said at a press conference after a Council of Ministers session.
According to the Prime Minister, the day scheduled for the presentation (May 2) is emblematic as it commemorates the so-called Dos de Mayo Combat, a day in which the entire nation came together to fight in the Pacific War.
In this respect, the Cabinet's chief assured his presence and that of State ministers in Congress will not lead to a war, although they will use dialogue
as a 'weapon.'
"The money is there, and people are waiting for their problems to be resolved," he concluded.
