PERU: Congress To Discuss Removing Kuczynski From Presidency

03/19/2018 - 13:04:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The Peruvian Congress has approved a motion to discuss requests to remove Pedro Pablo Kuczynski from the country's presidency due to his links with the Brazilian construction firm Odebrecht, investigated for corruption in multiple countries.

It was the second request in three months by the opposition to oust to oust Kuczynski from the presidency. Congress approved the motion with 87 votes in favor, 15 against it and 15 abstentions.

According to the request, Kuczynski lied by denying his contractual relationship with Odebrecht and his ties with executives of the firm when he held a government position more than a decade ago, something that was later recognized by the president himself.

If the vacancy request is admitted, a day and time will be agreed for the discussion and voting of the vacancy request. The president may exercise his defense himself or be assisted by a lawyer. For the presidential vacancy request to succeed, 87 votes are needed.

Earlier this year, two vacancy motions against Kuczynski were presented by the New Peru and Broad Front parties due to his links with Odebrecht.

A first vacancy motion against Pedro Pablo Kuczynski was rejected in December last year after the opposition failed to gather the 87 votes needed to oust him, while Keiko Fujimori's party supported PPK in the vote.

According to ruling party officials, the new vacancy motions are a reaction of left-wing parties to the humanitarian pardon granted by the President to Alberto Fujimori, Keiko's father, a few days after the vote. Fujimori was convicted of crimes against humanity, among other things.
