The Subcommittee on Constitutional Accusations (SAC) of Congress plans to see this Monday the request to reconsider the appointment of Edgard Reymundo, from Cambio Democrático-Juntos por el Perú , as delegate of the report of the constitutional complaint against Vice President Dina Boluarte.
The request is from Norma Yarrow, from Avanza País, author of one of the complaints that were accumulated against the vice president. She is accused of violating the Constitution for taking steps as president of the Apurímac Departmental Club when she was already a minister.
The appointment of Edgard Reymundo took place on July 20 at the proposal of the president of the subcommittee, Rosío Torres, from the Alliance for Progress (APP) caucus.

Although the assignment was approved unanimously, it is now questioned for being from a bench close to the ruling party. One of the members of the bench, Roberto Sánchez, has been part of the Ministerial Cabinet together with Boluarte since July 2021.
In a dialogue with El Comercio, Martha Moyano, vice president of the group, was against vetoing the delegate of a complaint, because this causes the process to be delayed. For this reason, she considered that the reconsideration will not be approved.
In addition, she said that in the subcommittee “everything is resolved by vote, it does not depend or Delegate decides. He just brings his report.”
Reymundo is a bench partner of Roberto Sánchez, who has been a member of the ministerial cabinet together with Dina Boluarte since the beginning of Pedro Castillo's government.
Alejandro Cavero, secretary of the subcommittee, told this newspaper that he will vote in favor “so that they assign a new rapporteur” and estimated that about 10 votes are required for this to prosper. Alejandro Muñante, from Renovación Popular, and María Acuña, from APP, also said they will support the request.
The SAC has 17 members, who belong to Free Peru (5), Fuerza Popular (3), APP (2), Acción Popular (2), Avanza País (1), Renovación Popular (1), Podemos Perú (1), Somos Perú (1) and Together for Democratic Peru-Cambo (1).
Also on the agenda is the continuation of the hearing for the complaint against President Pedro Castillo for alleged treason against the country.

This Sunday, Norma, Yarrow assured that she had received information that there will be “retaliation” against her and her family for the complaint against Dina Boluarte and for insisting on the change of delegate. “Apparently defending my principles and the Constitution is a crime,” she said on Twitter.
Alberto Otárola, Dina Boluarte's lawyer, replied that “it would be good [for you] to point out who is threatening her” and reminded her that the delegate's election was unanimous. “Now they want to kick the board, once again affecting due process,” he said.
In previous statements to El Comercio, Edgard Reymundo assured that It will be objective if it continues to be in charge of the report, although it also considered that the complaints against Pedro Castillo and Dina Boluarte respond to “certain political strategies.” He added that he has critical positions against the government.
