Peru President hopes citizens will choose wisely in 2020 parliamentary elections

17:09 | Lima, Oct. 7.

President Martin Vizcarra affirmed on Monday that he expects the 2020 parliamentary elections will be held normally and Peruvians will vote for the best candidates running for Congress.

According to the supreme decree published last week in El Peruano official gazette, new parliamentary elections will take place on January 26, 2020.

On the other hand, the Head of State indicated his administration is always open to dialogue. 


The top official recalled that he would meet with representatives of the Judiciary, the Public Ministry, the Ombudsman Office, and the Comptroller's Office in order to discuss the procedures to be followed in conducting the 2020 parliamentary elections.  

Likewise, the statesman reiterated that he showed himself willing to reach a consensus between the executive and legislative branches of government for the benefit of all Peruvians, although the latter showed discrepancies and entrapment in relevant issues. 

"There has been a fight to accomplish what is best for all Peruvians, we have made every effort for dialogue, and each of our actions proves this," he added. 

The remarks were made after handing over 130 patrol cars to the National Police in order to improve security in Lima and Callao.
