The ambassador of Peru on Spain, Claudio de la Puente Ribeyro, on Friday, July 16, repudiated the statements outlined by the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, about the second presidential round.
During the control session held every Thursday in the Madrid Parliament, Ayuso he referred to the crises in Cuba and Venezuela to criticize the Spanish left, but also last month’s elections in Peru.
“On Peru 44,000 dead have voted ”, he asserted Ayuso in the same line of the applicant Keiko Fujimori, who maintains a legal battle despite being scrutinized Pedro Castillo’s victory at the polls.
Through an official letter, the ambassador reminded him that “more than a dozen electoral observation missions, including those of the European Union, have recognized that the elections in Peru have been held ‘freely and democratic ‘”.
Yes the National Office of Electoral Processes (ONPE) denied the expressions given by the conservative leader, who recently was endorsed by the majority of voters in Madrid.
In addition, the diplomat rejected “another extreme of his intervention, in which he contextualizes the mention of the Peru alluding to the characterization of dictatorship ”.
“My country has demonstrated in its national and international execution an unwavering commitment to the values and principles of democracy and the rule of law, beyond the day-to-day difficulties of political life that all countries face, without exception, ”he said.
For this reason, he invoked her to “carefully meditate on the references – also inaccurate – to friendly countries and so close to Spain, how is he Peru, in internal policy debates ”.
At the end of last month the Minister of Social Rights and Agenda 2030 of Spain, Ione Belarra, had rejected the “delaying maneuvers” to proclaim Castillo president and indicated that in Peru there were “free, transparent and democratic elections according to all international observers.”
