    'Breaking point’ reached in Peru after supporters of losing candidate Fujimori attack ministers’ vehicles, members of press, 15.07.2021

    The interim president of Peru has warned that the country is on the brink after supporters of Keiko Fujimori, a right-wing candidate who refused to concede defeat in a presidential election, went on a rampage in the capital.

    “We cannot and we will not tolerate any acts of violence,” Peru’s interim president Francisco Sagasti said on Wednesday evening in an interview with Canal N news channel. Speaking about a day of violence in the capital Lima, he described it as a “breaking point” and pledged to use his power to “maintain tranquility and peace without incurring excesses” in policing.

    The warning came after supporters of Keiko Fujimori, a right-wing presidential candidate from the Popular Force party, caused a disturbance in Lima. Near the city’s main square, they intercepted the cars of two cabinet members, Health Minister Oscar Ugarte and Housing Minister Solangel Fernandez, who were on their way to the Government Palace to brief the media about the ongoing fight against Covid-19.

    The protesters stopped the vehicles and hit them with stones and other weapons, before the politicians were rescued by the police. Neither minister was harmed, but Ugarte said the incident constituted an attack against the government, since the cars were clearly marked as official government vehicles.

    The episode was part of a larger unrest involving people identified as members of a radical group called La Resistencia. They attempted to tear down barriers surrounding the palace in a bid to reach President Sagasti. The police deployed tear gas and mounted officers to quell the rioting.

    The demonstrators also harassed members of the press who were covering the protests. Canal N correspondent Fatima Chavez was accosted in the middle of her live report from the scene. Other journalists were reportedly targeted by the protesters too.

    The unruly demonstration in Lima was in support of Fujimori’s claims of election fraud, which prevented her rival, leftist Pedro Castillo, from being confirmed as the next president of Peru. The official count put Castillo 44,000 votes ahead of Fujimori, but she filed multiple challenges with a special election jury, resulting in weeks of delays.

    All of those appeals have been rejected by jury members due to lack of proof, but Fujimori also refused to accept those rulings. She has accused Sagasti of taking Castillo’s side due to his refusal to invite a foreign audit of the ballot as she requested. International observers said the June 6 election in Peru was legitimate.

    After Wednesday’s violence, Fujimori blasted the actions of her supporters, saying on Twitter that her party only accepted peaceful protests. Popular Force distanced itself from acts attributed to La Resistencia in the past. For example, it condemned the vandalism of a memorial to two young people killed during anti-government marches in Lima in November 2020. Local media identified one of the cars involved in the vandalism as being owned by Popular Force.

    The November demonstrations happened after the impeachment and removal from office of President Martin Vizcarra. Sagasti came into power after the five-day presidency of Manuel Merino, who resigned after the deaths of the protesters. In his Wednesday interview, Sagasti stressed how his government was taking a different approach to policing protests, compared to his predecessor.

    Critics say Fujimori is using stalling tactics in an attempt to postpone Castillo’s confirmation as president-elect beyond the July 28 deadline, when the new president is required by law to take office.

    Fujimori is the daughter and political successor of former president Alberto Fujimori, who is now serving a lengthy prison term for corruption and violations of human rights during his tenure. She herself is under investigation for corruption. Her ongoing bid for the presidency is the third in her career following two unsuccessful attempts in 2011 and 2016.

    Peru's Electoral Justice officially endorses candidate Pedro Castillo's victory in presidential elections., 18.07.2021.

    After widespread popular mobilizations, Peru's Electoral Justice finally reviewed and rejected the claims of rightist Keiko Fujimori to annul the votes of Professor Pedro Castillo, making the electoral victory of the leftist candidate official.

    After a long wait of more than a month, the rural teacher and trade unionist from one of the poorest Andean areas of the country will be proclaimed this Sunday, 18, President-elect. He will take office on July 28.

    The rightists responded with violence in the streets and with a last maneuver to delay the proclamation of Castillo, in the style of Donald Trump in the United States, which currently president Jair Bolsonaro threatens to imitate if he loses the 2022 presidential elections in Brazil.

    Fujimori Admits Defeat in Peru's Election, But Calls Castillo Victory 'Illegitimate, by Morgan Artyukhina for Sputniknews, 19.07.2021.

    Right-wing candidate Keiko Fujimori has finally given in after more than a month of contesting the June 6 presidential election, acknowledging her defeat by socialist candidate Pedro Castillo.

    In a television address Monday evening, Fujimori said she said she "will recognize the results because it is what the law and the Constitution that I have sworn to uphold." However, she dismissed Castillo's victory by denouncing the elections as "illegitimate" and called for mobilizations "in defense of democracy."

    ​Earlier in the presidential race, Fujimori had taunted Castillo and his party, Peru Libre, for raising allegations of fraud. However, once the ballot count in the second round of elections on June 6 began to turn against her, Fujimori began attributing the changing winds to fraud, despite not having evidence of fraud. She sought the discarding of hundreds of thousands of ballots, which had the potential to reverse the result, since Castillo was 44,000 votes ahead.

    International observers reported no evidence of fraud, either, even those like the Organization of American States that in the past have readily resorted to such accusations in order to run interference against socialist or left-wing candidates winning elections.

    Peru's National Jury of Elections (JNE) said on Twitter on Monday afternoon that it had dismissed five appeals by Fujimori's Fuerza Popular party and the body would "proceed to the preparation of the act of proclamation of general results."

    Keiko Fujimori is the daughter of right-wing ex-dictator Alberto Fujimori, who ruled Peru from 1990 until 2000. His tenure was associated with harsh neoliberal economic reforms, privatizations, and political terror, including a counterinsurgency war against the Maoist Shining Path movement. The elder Fujimori has been in prison since 2007 and Keiko promised to pardon him if elected president. Many of the elements of his government continued to support his daughter, including his spy chief, Vladimiro Montesinos, who was revealed late last month as having attempted to bribe the JNE to rule Kieko Fujimori was the winner.

    It's about time all of these patently agenda driven claims of fraud be treated like the boy who cried wolf. Every freaking US backed
    scumbag just has to shout "fraud" to get international sympathy from assorted US bootlicks. Enough already. Such accusations
    require proof. In the case of the 2020 US election there was clear evidence of 4 am ballot stuffing via fake 100% pro-Biden mail
    ballots. Gross violations of procedure were observed where votes came from people registered in empty parking lots and vacant buildings.

    In the upcoming elections in Russia we will see the same shit pulled by NATzO's 5th column. They will shout "fraud" without any real
    evidence and totally disjoint from the polling that shows which candidates and parties have real support. Some two bit malcontent
    who calls the 1990s a golden age cannot expect to win any vote in Russia. Even if he "wins" in the western propaganda bubble.

    Fujimori is clearly the same sort of scum.

    Peru: What will be the challenges of the new Castillo Government?, by Uruguayan journalist Fabián Cardozo for Spanish Sputniknews. 23.07.2021.

    After the official proclamation of Pedro Castillo as president-elect of Peru, Peruvian researcher Ramiro Escobar spoke with GPS International to analyze the political perspectives of a country hit by the crisis caused by the pandemic and political and institutional instability.

    The National Jury of Elections of Peru (JNE) proclaimed Pedro Castillo, of Peru Libre (izquierda), as president-elect of the country for the period 2021-2026. For his part, the leftist politician, made a call to build an inclusive Peru after his proclamation. In this context, "for some weeks, Castillo has been turning towards a center-left position, particularly because he has opened the political field and tried to seek allies," the researcher said.

    For his part, "one of the problems that Castillo will have will have to do with his links within the party that launched him to the presidency, Perú Libre, since to a large extent this political sector subscribes to a radical left," he said. Likewise, " this party tries to ensure that Castillo does not go so far to the center of the political spectrum, so from this tension it is said that the appointment of the president of the Council of Ministers will come out, which is something that will outline the route of the new Government," he said.

    Peru's President-elect will try to forge a plural cabinet

    In this sense , "both this appointment and that of the rest of the ministers will be key to make the whole Parliament more potable, as well as to add alliances that provide an acceptable government team for the whole population," he said. For its part, "the pandemic is among the great challenges that the Government will have, since although the number of cases of Covid-19 has fallen considerably, the possibilities of a third wave remain latent," Escobar concluded.

    Pedro Castilllo: The misfortunes of Republican Peru, by Chile's journalist Rafael Luis Gumucio Rivas for El Clarín outlet.  24.07.2021.

    The story taught at school is definitely a set of fallacies. On July 28, Peru will meet 200 years of Independence, (Argentina, Chile and Peru did not exist during the colonial era), were only the viceroyalty, as the New Granada, Mexico, and Peru, and the presidencies and captaincies in Chile, Argentina – River plate -, Ecuador and Venezuela.

    The liberator José de San Martín took the most appropriate path to reach the beaches of Peru, liberating Chile, whose independence we owe to the Argentines. San Martín, less ambitious than Simón Bolívar, understood that the placement of a European monarch was better than a President-dictator, (as Bolivar wished), who appropriated Upper Peru, (today Bolivia), proclaiming himself President for life, along with the name of Bolivia.

    The independence of former colonies in Latin america have very little to do with the wars between Spain and the countries of the area, what we rather call the heroes were freemasons at the service of England, therefore, these nations existed only  due to the intrigues of the Jesuits, well deserved also the expulsion of the european monarchies, and, above all, those made by the great Conde de Aranda, whose plan was smarter than the famous wars of independence).

    The history of the old viceroyalty of Peru has been pretty tragic, and its only glorious episode was to have won the war against Spain, during the mid-NINETEENTH century, thanks to the collaboration of Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, and the Great Colombia, preventing any attempt by Spain to regain its former colonies, which ended by losing them at the end of the NINETEENTH century (with the independence of Cuba, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico).

    The republican history of Peru, during the TWENTIETH century, has been very tragic and military dictatorships, such as that of Velasco Alvarado, Francisco Bermudez, in addition to the period of the election of Alberto Fujimori in the presence of the good but high immoral writer Mario Vargas Llosa, who along with his son, Álvaro, emulator of his father and a poor writer, and editor of the pamphlet The idiota latinoamericano (The Latin American Idiot) when the liberal idiot is himself. Fujimori, let us remember, won comfortably due to the pillage of Alán García, creating around him a group of mafiosi, along with Vladimiro Montesinos and the military.

    The President-elect Fujimori, an unknown rector of an agrarian university, did not even have a political program, and had inherited from outgoing President Alán García a chaotic economic situation triggered by hyperinflation. Fujimori became a trusted friend of the former C. I. A. agent, and expelled from Peru's military intelligence, who dedicated himself to fighting the Sendero Luminoso leftist guerrillas and the Tupac Amaro. The method used by his adviser Montesinos to maintain the dictatorship was to buy parliamentarians and businessmen, whose transaction was recorded in the famous “vladivideos”, then used to blackmail them and, in this way, have evidence to maintain the dictatorship.

    In 1992 Fujimori ordered the closure of the Congress, and in 1993 he approved the Constitution that, until today, governs Peru. Later, the mafioso dictator Fujimori took refuge in his homeland, Japan, (until now it is believed that he was not born in Peru, but in Japan), and from that country he presented his resignation from the presidency, a document that he sent by fax.

    The purported democratic successors in the top position were as dishonest as Fujimori: Alejandro Toledo, el Cholo, is still in the United States, pending the opinion of extradition on the part of the justice of this country; Alán García, another of the corrupt Presidents opted for the path of suicide for not facing justice; the ex-military, Ollanta Humala and his snobish wife, were several months in jail while investigating their crimes came Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, aka PPK, one of the typical neoliberal scoundrels (several of them were swarming in South America), who resigned before being thus vacated, and succeeded by his Vice president, Martin Vizcarra, considered even more rascal than the President himself, (even, took advantage of the vaccines against the Covid-19 for his own inoculation and members of his family) that, once out of office vacancy, was replaced by the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Manuel Merino, who was expelled by the popular demonstrations, after four days of taking up the position.

    Since 1990 until today, that when will take over the President-elect, Pedro Castillo, the Republic of Peru has had only corrupted Presidents, to which must be added the three nominations to the Presidency of the Republic of Keiko Fujimori, who, fortunately, has come in second place at her third attempt, whose fate seems to being condemned to 30 years in prison for various crimes, including money laundering and conspiracy.

    So far, the Acting President Sagasti is considered to be honest, and hopefully the new President, Pedro Castillo, who will be empowered on July 28, is honest.
