—who attempted to involve the Armed Forces in political acts— was reckless and collides with the current democratic order.
The Cabinet member pointed out that he had informed the Council of Ministers about the facts related to the calls received by general commanders of the Armed Forces from Parliament Head Manuel Merino.
"As I made it known on Thursday, when I demanded respect for the institutionalism of the Armed Forces, today I must categorically reject Mr. Merino
's attitude of making calls that were not only reckless and out of place but also collide with the democratic order," he expressed.
The Cabinet member also pointed out that following his statements on TV to call for respect for the Armed Forces, he received a message from Accion Popular party Congressman Otto Guibovich
, who expressed disagreements with the remarks.
"The attitude of Congress Chairman
has been reckless by attempting to involve the Armed Forces in a political process from which the general commanders remain absolutely (independent and) on the sidelines in unrestricted respect for the non-deliberative principle," he said.
Remarks were made following a Council of Ministers session held at the Government Palace in Lima.
