Pedro Castillo’s last minute after the vacancy and dissolution of the Peruvian Congress, live: news, resignations and reactions

Almagro says Castillo’s decision marked a “change in the constitutional order” at the extraordinary meeting of the OAS Permanent Council.

The Secretary-General of the Organization of American States, Luis Almagro, confirmed that the decision of the former President of Peru, Pedro Castillo, constitutes a “change of the constitutional system in the country” and that it is “reprehensible and reprehensible from every point of view” during the session of the Organization’s Permanent Council, which was held on Wednesday in Washington.

“Let us hope that this will be the last time that a people’s government, a local government, a government of the healthiest section of the country’s nationality, is so vigorously rejected by the political system, under the existing system, and is constantly sought to overthrow,” he said. Bolivian official.
