The progressive Movement New Peru (MNP) will promote a project for the so-called presidential vacancy due to moral disability

The decision of several Peruvian political forces to propose the dismissal of President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski persists today after the president’s argument, who tried to limit that effort to ”communist groups” and refused to resign.

The parliamentary spokesman of the progressive Movement New Peru (MNP), Alberto Quintanilla, ratified the decision of his bench to promote a project for the so-called presidential vacancy due to moral disability, due to signs of corruption.

He accused Kuczynski of misinforming by arguing that the new attempt to dismiss him is motivated by the pardon granted to ex-president Alberto Fujimori on December 24, three days after the abstention of a Fujimorist faction saved him from being vacated by Congress of the Republic.

Quintanilla stated that the new project does not even mention the pardon and is based ‘on the permanent confusion that the president has had between the public and the private sector’, alluding to his business while he joined the government of Alejandro Toledo (2001-06).

Ideally, for avoiding the vacancy process is for Kuczynski to resign, which ‘would be the most convenient for the country. It would prevent us from continuing to bleed politically,’ he added when requesting the head of state to rise to the occasion.
