Despite the political and social crisis facing his country, the Peruvian Congress this Sunday prevented progress in unblocking the situation by rejecting the choice of leftist legislator Rocío Silva Santisteban as the one I would have been the first president in the history of the country.

Silva headed a list that, in principle, was announced by consensus to assume the presidency of the Legislature and, thus, replace Manuel Merino as head of state, who resigned from both functions in the midst of the crisis generated since last Monday, when Martín Vizcarra was dismissed.

After numerous and prolonged negotiations, the list of the legislator of the Left Broad Front seemed to have everything in her favor to obtain the necessary support, but when the vote was carried out she only received 42 votes in favor, while they were issued 52 against and 25 legislators abstained.

The Plenary’s decision ruined the possibility that Silva Santisteban, a 57-year-old poet, journalist and activist, would become the first woman, and the first left politics, to reach the Government Palace in the history of Peru.

Faced with the rejection of this board proposal, the nine benches of parliament must negotiate to form another consensus list which was scheduled to be voted on this Sunday, to give peace of mind to the public.

The urgency is due to the fact that the resignation that Merino presented to the Head of State has already been accepted by the Legislature, which makes Peru currently lacks government.

Citizen rejection

The congressional decision generated the rejection of a multitude of people who are outside the Legislative Palace waiting for a constitutional solution to the crisis facing Peru.

Analysts and journalists criticized Parliament for staying again oblivious to the demands of citizenship, since last Monday he also dismissed Vizcarra despite the majority opinion against Peruvians, which unleashed the political and social crisis in the country.

Citizens rejected the subsequent takeover of Merino, who was president of Congress, with massive marches that were harshly repressed by the police in Lima and this Saturday they left two dead and dozens injured.
