Peru President: Present week is crucial and decisive for democracy

15:00 | Tacna (Tacna region), Jun. 3.

President Martin Vizcarra on Monday affirmed the present week is crucial and decisive for Peru's future and urged diverse sectors to reject harmful practices, such as cover-ups and impunity, in order to move the needed reforms forward in Peru.

"We do not want immunity to become impunity," the Head of State expressed. 

In this sense, he deemed Congress' support as essential for promoting the political-judicial reforms aimed at improving the political class, as well as strengthening democracy

Likewise, it will serve to prevent corruption cases —such as the Port's White Collars— from happening again.

Furthermore, the top official indicated his administration is not only working on the reform, but also on important projects for the Inca country's population.

Concerning the introduction of a confidence motion last week, the statesman informed it was carried out strictly respecting the legal and constitutional framework. 

Moreover, he expects Congress members will give their confidence vote —after having listened to Prime Minister Salvador del Solar on Tuesday— and then boost the reforms Peru needs, as well as rely on more solid institutions, so these can regain the population's trust.


Remarks were made after signing a Supreme Decree authorizing the budget transfer for the improvement and expansion of water provision for the agricultural development of Tacna region's valley.
