The Avanza País bench presented a second interpellation motion against the Minister of Health (Minsa), Hernan Condoridue to “the various questions regarding his suitability for the exercise of the position”. The interpellatory statement is made up of 8 questions.
In the document promoted by Congressman Diego Bazán, he mentions that Condori Machado has the professional title of medical surgeon, but does not accredit a medical specialty or studies related to public management.
In addition, it details that on January 2, 2020, the current minister was appointed regional health director of Junín, however, “The aforementioned appointment lasted six days, until January 8, 2020, because he was removed from the position due to lack of suitability to hold the position.”.
Another point addressed in the motion of censure is that Hernán Condori is being investigated by the Temporary Corporate Provincial Prosecutor’s Office Specialized in Crimes of Corruption of Officials of La Merced, in Junín, for the crime of improper collection and incompatible negotiation.

“Even the Medical College of Peru, which represents the medical community in the country, has publicly demanded the resignation of the Minister of Health, Hernán Yury Condori Machado for all the facts that have been previously exposed.”, indicates the document.
The motion is signed by legislators Adriana Tudela, Heidy Juárez, Alejandro Cavero, Mery Infantes, Juan Burgos, Norma Yarrow, Yessica Amuruz, Susel Paredes, Alejandro Soto, José Williams, Edward Málaga, Patricia Chirinos, Diana Gonzáles, among others.
