Max Hernández, technical secretary of the Acuerdo Nacional, invited presidential candidates Keiko Fujimori (Fuerza 2011) and Ollanta Humala (Gana Perú) to suscribe this “National Agreement” and the Plan Bicentenario (“Bicentennial Plan”), reported El Comercio.
“I think the Acuerdo Nacional can be a space of dialogue, but additionally I think that it would be very important that the candidates subscribe the state policies and the Plan Bicentenario,” said Hernández.
The Acuerdo Nacional is a group of joint state policies that were elaborated and approved under Toledo’s administration in 2002, and subscribed by the main representatives of Peru’s political organizations and civil society.
On the other hand, the Plan Bicenterario was elaborated by the National Center of Strategic Planning (Ceplan) and it sets out a long-term working plan for a decade looking forward to 2021, year when Peru will celebrate 200 years of independence.
According to Hernández, “regardless of who wins the elections” the country has to keep what has been achieved so far economically, but also “boost education, health and infrastructure.”
