The Minister of Culture, Alexander Salaswas pronounced after the Subcommittee on Constitutional Accusations (SAC) approved the qualification report that declares the constitutional complaint against the Minister of Development and Social Inclusion admissible, Dina Boluarte.
The member of the ministerial cabinet pointed out that the accusation against the also vice president of the Republic is due to a political strategy by Congress to weaken the Government.
“What is intended by trying to disqualify her is that the country be left without a vice president (…) It obeys a political strategy, that is absolutely clear. We cannot say or show another situation like this if we wanted to because what is intended is to weaken the Executive Branch from one angle or another”, he indicated in dialogue with Canal N.
In that sense, Salas asserted that the most important thing in the Congress of the Republic is not the legal and constitutional foundations that are presented, but the votes that they have to make a decision against Boluarte Zegarra.
“Now a reason has been found that, for me, is absolutely unfounded from a legal and constitutional point of view. However, what prevails in the Congress of the Republic are not the legal and constitutional arguments, but what prevails are the votes“, held.
“The subject of Mrs. Boluarte is surely naive, surely it could have been avoided so as not to generate these interpretations that are harming her constitutionally speaking. Disqualifying a person from holding public office is a very sensitive issue. You are putting a person out of a job, be it five or ten years”, he added.
