He added that Castillo’s possible departure from office “is a feeling at the national level, since (that) the facts that are involving the investiture of the position are quite scandalous.”

“The ideal would be for the president to resign,” remarked the head of the Legislative.

The head of Parliament said that in the meeting they did not talk about the investigations against Castillo, but about the budget that the Public Ministry needs to carry out its work of crime prevention and fight against organized crime.

This Friday, the conservative APP party asked Castillo to “evaluate his immediate resignation from office” due to the political and economic crisis that the country is going through “as a result of the misrule, improvisation and lack of credibility that characterize the current Executive.”

In addition, the party indicated that, if the presidential resignation does not occur, constitutional solutions should be implemented for the sake of the “well-being” and “stability” of the country.

The political group founded by businessman César Acuña added that “it will not participate in any cabinet of Pedro Castillo’s government” because “it lacks the necessary legitimacy” due to the allegations of corruption that compromise the ruler.

In this sense, APP stressed that none of its 300,000 militants is authorized to participate in the composition of the new ministerial cabinet, which Castillo will swear in in the next few hours, after the resignation of Prime Minister Aníbal Torres.

Camones also supported the decision of the plenary session of Congress, which denied Castillo permission to travel to the inauguration of the president-elect of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, considering that his presence is needed to reshape the cabinet and provide a solution to the current ministerial crisis. .
