Who is Dina Boluarte, the brand new president of Peru?

This is the primary lady to change into president of Peru within the nation’s historical past. The Communist, from Castillo’s social gathering, has refused to help him in his coup try

The chronicles of the Peruvian newspapers say that Dina Boluarte knew since final weekend that her president, good friend and fellow social gathering member, Pedro Castillo, was making ready a coup collectively along with his “rasputin” Anibal Torres. In truth, the resignation of the Defense Minister over the weekend didn’t bode nicely. After the resignation that he could be the fifteenth minister of Pedro Castillo in 18 months of presidency, all of the alarms have been unleashed.

The Peruvian communist authorities accused the opposition, judges, businessmen and journalists of wanting to finish “democracy and the favored will”, when in actuality what they needed was to vary the Peruvian Constitution after dissolving Congress accusing it of of “violating the favored will”. The political maneuver, which has already succeeded in different Latin American international locations reminiscent of Venezuela, Bolivia, and which they tried in Ecuador, has not been profitable in Peru. The establishments have labored, maybe as a result of the nation has a report of imprisoned or needed presidents. Presidents accused of corruption and located responsible, as within the case of Ollanta Humala, additionally an indigenous member, or of coups, reminiscent of Fujimori.

And one of many causes for the failure to perpetuate himself in energy of Pedro Castillo “the trainer of the indigenous individuals and peasant chief who turned president” who turned the chief of the Peruvian excessive left, has been the “foot on the wall” that he put within the vital hours his social gathering companion, Dina Boluarte. While Castillo faces 20 years in jail, Dina has change into president of the nation with the help of the Peruvian congress.

The former vp of Castillo and the brand new interim president of the nation till the elections in 2026 has requested all political events for a “truce” to stabilize the nation. She has promised to hunt a consensus amongst all to concentrate on well being, training and infrastructure and little else. Castillo besieged by corruption (indicted in 6 corruption circumstances together with a number of of his former ministers and shut family members) has needed to title as much as 5 governments in a 12 months and a half. Since he got here to energy by a slim benefit, his rule has been riddled with scandal.

The now president was additionally Minister of Development and Social Inclusion till final week, however left workplace on the finish of November, after the final cupboard change. Born on May 31, 1962 in Chalhuanca, within the Peruvian area of Apurímac, the primary president of Peru in 200 years of republican historical past is a lawyer and totally entered politics in July 2021, when Castillo received the second spherical of elections. presidential.

I reject the choice of Pedro Castillo to perpetrate the breakdown of the constitutional order with the closure of Congress. It is a coup that aggravates the political and institutional disaster that Peruvian society should overcome with strict adherence to the legislation.
