Congressman Alex Paredes (Bloque Magisterial) announced that his caucus will not support the motion of censure against the Minister of Labor and Employment Promotion, Betssy Chavezwhich will be evaluated in the plenary session of Congress this week.
The parliamentarian asserted that, from this new group, they are sure that the questions that were raised to the member of the ministerial cabinet in the interpellation were resolved successfully.
“We consider that the interpellation with the questions posed have been satisfied with the answers presented. So, it would not merit censorship, if that is the direction that has to be taken”, declared Paredes from outside the government palace after meeting with him President Pedro Castillo.
In that sense, he said that he hopes that at the time of voting on the motion of censure, presented by the Fuerza Popular bench, the congressmen adopt an objective and truthful position.
“Hopefully tomorrow you will be objective, be truthful. Regardless of who he is, he is a human being, he has a family behind him and not because one assumes political responsibilities does he have to be exposed to mistreatment, I believe that the lessons that must be given to the population is to try to regain credibilitysaid Alex Paredes.
In addition to this, he recalled the offensive adjectives that the third vice president of Congress, Patricia Chirinos (Avanza País), used against Betssy Chávez during her questioning.
“I can disagree, but I have to know how to drive, even more so when it comes from an authority. The person (Patricia Chirinos) who used the adjectives is not just any person, she is not only a congressman, she is an authority“, he pointed.
