The Popular Force's caucus considered “a mockery of the country” the message to the Nation from the President of the Republic, Pedro Castillo, before Congress this Thursday, July 28, for National Holidays.
In a statement, he indicated that out of respect for the constitutional protocols and out of consideration for the presidential figure, he listened to the message to the country from Castillo Terrones, which he described as “self-aggrandizement”.
Likewise, he questioned that the head of state has not made any self-criticism of his “disastrous” administration and believes that his government is the best thing that has happened to him happened to our homeland.
“We deeply regret that the head of state is not aware of the reality that surrounds him, much less that the Peruvian people repudiate him not only for his mediocre government but also because he is the cause of an unprecedented institutional debacle in our country”, underlined.
“As a Party and as a Parliamentary Group we join the popular feeling of a large majority of Peruvians who do not feel represented by the current head of state and who cry loudly: Corrupt out!”, he added.
Finally, the Popular Forces caucus urged the democratic forces to unite to apply the constitutional mechanisms and put an end to the current political and moral crisis “whose epicenter is the Government Palace, with Pedro Castillo at the head”.
As recalled, Pedro Castillo admitted having made mistakes in the appointments he made, since he considered that he gave confidence to officials and did not they knew how to take advantage of it.
During his message to the Nation in the Chamber of Congress, the president clarified that the acts committed by the people who gave the trust, are opposed to their values.
“I must admit that we have made mistakes with some designations, as well as give confidence to those who took advantage and mocked it. Nothing more opposed and distant from my values, my principles, my dignity are the acts that my own parents have instilled in me”, he pointed out.
In that sense, he said he recognized the work carried out by the Prosecutor's Office and the Judiciary, in reference to the investigations carried out against former officials such as the former Secretary General of the Government Palace Bruno Pacheco and former minister Juan Silva.
“I recognize the work being done by the Public Ministry and the Judiciary, because in our country we suffer from an ancestral thirst for justice, which must be imparted equally and without distinction of ideologies and political colors”, he asserted.
