These parties “evaluate the pertinence of presenting the vacancy motion after Jorge Barata in Sao Paulo and PPK in Lima declare”, La República explains. This way “they would have the 87 votes that are needed to empty the president’s seat”, they added.
Nevertheless, the vacancy proposal hasn’t been presented yet because there is doubt in it should be done before or after knowing Kuczynski’s answers to the Lava Jato commission in Congress, and what Odebrecht’s ex-president in Peru, Jorge Barata, has to say as well. He will be interrogated by the end of this month by Peruvian prosecutors in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
In another scenario, if Frente Amplio and Nuevo Perú present the vacancy proposal before having information of new evidence on their hands, they run the risk of not achieving enough backup from other political parties in Congress.
