Arequipa. The mayor of the district of Miraflores, Luis Aguirre, did not miss the opportunity. Yesterday he arrived at the inauguration of the resurfacing of Progreso Avenue, with a large citizens’ laptop. And it is that Aguirre is also a candidate for the provincial mayor’s office for the political party Alliance for Progress (APP). After the event, his followers received a plate of food from municipal workers.
Aguirre arrived walking from the Mayta Capac park. The citizens who followed him chanted his name and that of the mayor of Arequipa, Omar Candia. They even took out a gigantography with his photo and thanking him for managing the work. Although they were careful not to use the APP symbol, the colors of the political organization were observed.
After the event, his followers received containers with food from municipal workers; It was chicken rice.
When consulted, the mayor denied that he had coordinated the laptop and the food for them. “Where are they? Don’t I see them?” he would say, as people queued up behind him. We had to ask him to turn around to see them. “I don’t know who will be giving the food. I’m mayor, but I don’t have to know everything. I will ask which official made the request, ”he said, somewhat confused by the questions.
The mayor stated that he is not yet campaigning. He said that he did not even know if he would apply because that already depended on the legal representative of APP. “Yes, I want to be mayor, but I’m not in the race yet,” he said to save the questioning.
Finally, the followers of Luis Aguirre were also violent when they saw that the journalists recorded the delivery of food.❖
