"We are trying to reach agreements with right-wing senators, but that does not mean we will stop acting in the face of illegal actions," Minister Chavez highlighted.
On Tuesday, Peru’s Labor Minister Betssy Chavez filed a constitutional complaint against Congress President Maria Alva, whom she accused of sedition and criminal organization for leading far-right lawmakers’ attempts to remove President Pedro Castillo from office.
"Alva's acts are malicious and are typified in criminal law," Chavez said, stressing that the Castillo administration had no previous knowledge of the complaint since she filed it as a legislator.
Nevertheless, Chavez pointed out that there is no contradiction between her initiative and the dialogue prompted by the Executive branch with lawmakers, most of whom belong to the opposition.
"As ministers, we are trying to reach agreements with these politicians, but that does not mean that we will stop acting in the face of illegal actions," she highlighted and recalled that the Congress’ Sub-Commission on Constitutional Accusations will have to assess her complaint so that it could be voted in the plenary assembly.
