The EU-LAT Network, together with the Plataforma Europa Perú and the international network of Catholic organizations CIDSE, we want to express our deep concern about the current institutional and political crisis that Peru is experiencing, five months before the elections, following the decision of Congress to dismiss the President of the Executive Martín Vizcarra.

The dismiss comes at a complex time due to the multiple crises affecting the country – health, social, economic, environmental and climate – and compromises the already fragile stability and institutionality of the country. For this reason, we want to show our solidarity with the Peruvian people and we ask the European Union for a series of actions aimed at ensuring respect for democracy and human rights in Peru.
