Apra and UN Look for Ways to Work Together


Representatives from APRA and UN are looking for ways to develop a Democratic alliance and a common agenda that a government led by Alan Garcia (Apra) or Lourdes Flores (UN) would be able to follow. According to spokespersons from both parties they are prepared to work together on such fronts as anti-corruption, education, jobs, health, and judicial reform. They are also seeking ways to cooperate or work closer together on such sectors as trade agreements, agriculture and security.

The greatest difference between the two parties revolves around the development of a new constitution. Apra wants to reinstitute and have approved by the new congress the Magna Carta that was in place in 1979. Meanwhile, UN believes that creating or changing the constitution will do nothing to benefit the country.
