I call on the international community and the Peruvian people to activate the Inter-American Democratic Charter and remain vigilant against any destabilization and coup attempt in the country, perpetrated by those who still do not accept their defeat and attempt against the citizens. 

"A series of speculations are circulating in the corporate press with the objective of attacking democracy. The same people who conspired against the previous presidents, want to do it now against the Government of the people", denounced the President.

"Mrs. Karelim López has provided the Prosecutor's Office with statements without legal support or coherence with the truth that threaten the ethics and transparency of the procedures of any investigation," said Castillo, cataloging López's actions as "anti-democratic political maneuvers" that seek to destabilize the country.

"I call on the international community and the Peruvian people to activate the Inter-American Democratic Charter and remain vigilant against any destabilizing and coup attempt in the country, perpetrated by those who still do not accept their defeat and attempt against the citizenship", concluded the highest representative of the Peruvian Government.

Pedro Castillo, 52 years old, became president of Peru in June of this year after obtaining 50.12 % of the votes in the last federal elections, beating his rival Keiko Fujimori.
