The president of the Government, Pedro Sanchezhas transferred to Dina Ercilia Boluarte, the new president of Peru after the crisis opened this Wednesday, “the support of Spain in the defense of the Constitution and the Rule of Law.”
This has been published on Twitter by Sánchez himself, who points out that “I have just talked with @DinaErcilia, after her appointment as president of Peru. The Peruvian people and their institutions have been an example of democratic strength“.
“I have transferred the support of Spain in the defense of the Constitution and the rule of law,” adds Sánchez.
The Spanish government has “firmly” condemned the “rupture of the constitutional order in Peru”, after what some have described as an attempted coup d’état by the already ousted president, Pedro Castillo, and has celebrated the subsequent “restoration of democratic normality “.
The until now president of Peru, Pedro Castillo, was arrested this Wednesday shortly after being dismissed by Congress and being accused by the majority of having attempted to carry out a coup d’état, by announcing the dissolution of the Legislature and declaring a government of exception and emergency.
After the dismissal of Castillo, the plenary session of the Peruvian Congress summoned the vice president Dina Boluarte to be sworn in as the new head of state.
