(EFE). – Peru’s electoral division again took to the streets this Saturday with demonstrations among right-wing supporters مؤيد Keiko Fujimori In condemning fraud without proof at the ballot box and those who are actually calling for an official declaration on the left Pedro Castillo as an elected president.
While some protested against the “fraud” they considered to have occurred in Castillo’s electoral victory, supporters of the actual winner of the election protested the “coup” which, in their view, Fujimori intended to carry out to avoid his third defeat. . consecutive presidential elections.
Castillo and Fujimori intervened in the demonstrations in the historic center of Lima for the second week in a row and put more pressure on the National Elections Arbitration Commission (JNE), pending the decision of Fujimori’s resources to annul thousands of votes.
Although it hasn’t been officially announced yet, Castillo has already started Act as president-elect this week At his rally this Saturday, he projected the main lines of his government as a message of unity to his followers in San Martin Square, a traditional venue for social protests in the Peruvian capital.
In his short speech, Castillo said, “The battles are over. I pray the widest unity of the Peruvian people. From this moment on, there are no winners or losers. We are a big family called to lead a Peruvian of opportunity.”
“Disputes are over. I appeal to the broadest unity of the Peruvian people. From this moment on, there are no winners or losers. We are a large family invited to lead a Peruvian opportunity.”
“They have an elected government here,” added the teacher and leader of the Peruvian Teaching Profession Union, who promised a mandate without corruption.
Castillo denied that neither he nor his accompanying technical team Chavistas or communists Since they were labeled by Fujimori, repeat that they won’t remove properties Nobody, and even announced their intention to endorse Giulio Velardi – in reference to economic orthodoxy – at the head of the Central Bank.
“We are democrats, we respect governance and institutions and we will respect this constitution,” said the president-elect, whose primary promise is to promote a Constituent Assembly to pass a new constitution that would allow the nationalization of natural resources.
Castillo also welcomed the statements of international organizations such as the Organization of American States (OAS) that ruled out fraud in the elections held on Sunday, June 6th.
Along the same lines, the European Union, the US Department of State and Canada, as well as other national organizations overseeing the process, such as the Civic League for Transparency, the Ombudsman’s Office and the Peruvian Bishops’ Conference, demonstrated this week.
With 100% of the vote, Castillo is the de facto president-elect, receiving 50.12% of the valid vote, by a narrow margin of 44,000 votes over Fujimori.
However, the day after the vote, seeing that her defeat was almost irreversible, the daughter and political heir of former President Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000) denounced the alleged fraud and demanded that some be rescinded. 200,000 votes from rural areasAnd the Andean and the poor where Castillo had overwhelming support.
After electoral juries primarily dismissed all of his appeals for insufficient evidence or for not being presented on time, Fujimori announced Saturday at a rally that he would send a letter to interim president, Francisco Sagaste, requesting the OAS. International audit.
“We are democrats, we respect governance and institutions, and we will respect this constitution.”
“Mr. Sagaste: Look and listen to the voices of more than eight million Peruvians who want to know the truth,” Fujimori said.
“We are not asking that they favor us, but that all those irregularities and traps that have been placed on the table be analyzed,” he added.
During the rally, Fujimori avoided meeting on the podium with lawyer and Fuerza Popular spokesman Miguel Angel Torres or with Popular Christian Party (PPC) leader Lourdes Flores, two of his key advisers in his legal strategy.
This is after a judge warned him on Monday that he could return to temporary prison if he met again with Torres, Flores or any other witness in an alleged money laundering case where he faces accusation 30 years and 10 months in prison for irregular campaign financing.
“I will never give up,” Fujimori replied, as his position of not recognizing the election results polarized the country, a situation that prompted the head of the National Office for Electoral Operations (ONPE), Piero Corveto, to: He was a victim of physical abuse at the Regatas Lima club.
The focus will therefore continue to be on JNE, which has not yet resolved Fujimori’s resources, although it has already confirmed the rejection of the top ten, which brings Castillo’s official declaration as president-elect even closer.
