Boluarte urges the Peruvian Congress to accept an electoral advance: “Nobody has any interest in holding onto office”

The President of Peru, Dina Boluarte, has urged the Peruvian Congress on Thursday to accept an electoral advance for 2023. In addition, he has stated that in his government “nobody has any interest in clinging to office” and has promised that he will carry out this measure “immediately”. He has done it with the aim of getting out of the political and social crisis in which the country is submerged and in response to the demands of the protesters.

Peruvian Prime Minister Alberto Otárolaagrees with Boluarte on the possibility of early elections and has stated that the Peruvian Congress has to decide “now” because they need to “call elections and establish an electoral calendar, which is the responsibility of the Congress“. He has also defended the president, assuring that “she has already presented a constitutional reform project to advance the elections to April 2024, which is waiting to be confirmed.”

the fujimorista party people force requested this Thursday the modification of the advancement of general elections in Peru in April 2024 for a date this year, a position that has been debated this Friday again in the Parliament. “If Popular Force and Alliance for Progress —the second right-wing force in the Peruvian Congress after Fuerza Popular— are asking for what they had already presented (an electoral advance to 2023), that this proposal be resumed in this sense, which has no conditions and will get us out of the quagmire in which we are”, said the president.

Eight weeks have passed since the protesters took to the streets of Peru calling for the release of the former president, Pedro Castillo, for the dissolution of Congress on December 7. They also demand the resignation of Boluarte, the closure of Congress and the advancement of the elections.
