Peru demands “slips” AMLO: Pedro Castillo’s dismissal was a coup of conservatism

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador ignored the demand from Peru’s prime minister and reiterated his criticism of the appointment of Dina Boluarte as president, a move he considers a coup by the conservative sector.


“We have already given our point of view, we stand by one thing, that it was a Coup of conservatism in PeruFrom Peruvian bosses who, like conservatives in Mexico and other countries, are classist, racist and very corrupt,” he remarked when questioned on the subject.

According to the president, former President Pedro Castillo had a similar fate to him in Mexico, a country where power groups make “life impossible” for governments elected by the majority of people not to serve as instruments facilitating theft and looting. Let’s make it”.

“Here we are the victims but fortunately the majority of Mexicans are aware and no longer want an oligarchy to continue to rob, impoverish and harm our people,” he said.
