Peru PM: Gov't willing to go until last consequences to achieve political reform

10:25 | Lima, Jun. 3.

Prime Minister Salvador del Solar has affirmed President Vizcarra's administration is fully willing to go until the last consequences, so Peru can achieve the political reform.

According to the high-ranking official, the future the Inca country aims to is not possible with the current regulations that rule national politics. 

In this sense, he indicated these rules rob "Peru's future, works, health, and education."

"We have no problems in going until the last consequences to achieve the political reform. That is our goal (…)," Del Solar told Cuarto Poder TV show.

Likewise, he pointed out Congress "must wake up" and realize the majority of Peruvians do not wish to continue with the current rules that are responsible for allowing corruption to enter politics

Furthermore, the Prime Minister assured the confidence motion introduced by the Executive Branch last week does not close the channels of dialogue with Parliament. 

The Parliament's plenary session —aimed at discussing the confidence motion— will take place on Tuesday.

The Peruvian Constitution allows an acting President to close Congress and call for new legislative elections if Parliament dismisses two cabinets.

As is known, the current Congress had already granted a no-confidence vote to a former cabinet in September 2017. At that time, Mr. Vizcarra was serving as Vice-President.
