The Supreme Court of Peru spoke after the attempt to establish an exceptional regime and to dissolve the National Congress. During a session this Wednesday, 7, Francisco Morales, president of the Constitutional Court of Peru, gave an interview to local radio RPP and made an appeal to the Armed forces to ensure the “restoration of constitutional order” and called former President Pedro Castillo’s attempt to install a government of exception a coup d’état “in the purest style of the 20th century”. “It is a coup doomed to failure, Peru wants to live in democracy. This coup d’état has no legal basis, ”he said. In response, the Armed Forces published a note asking for caution and respect for legally established State institutions. “The Joint Command of the Armed Forces and the National Police of Peru inform public opinion that: The Armed Forces and the National Police of Peru are respectful of the constitutional orders established in Article 134 of the Political Constitution, which establishes that the President of the Republic is empowered to dissolve the Congress, if he censures you or denies you confidence. Any act contrary to the established constitutional order constitutes an infraction of the Constitution and generates non-compliance by the Armed Forces and the National Police of Peru. We ask the population to remain calm and trust the legally established state institutions,” he said.
