In a statement released on Tuesday, October 1, the OAS assured that it is “the responsibility of the Constitutional Court of Peru to rule on the legality and legitimacy of the institutional decisions adopted,” by the President and congress respectively.
The OAS also describes President Vizcarra’s call for general elections a “constructive step,” acknowledging that “the final decision rests with the Peruvian people, in whom lies the sovereignty of the nation.”
The statement also makes an appeal to the Peruvian nation for “gestures that favor calm in the face of the crisis. It is essential that the public is not exposed to violence in a context of conflict and political fragility seen in recent months through different points of possible escalation of sectoral conflicts that, although they are outside the current crisis, could further complicate the situation.”
