The President of the Congress of Peru, José Williams, said on Wednesday (10) that the Executive intends to “close” the Parliament and qualified as a “provocation” the fact of trying to ask for a motion of confidence on a project of law that, in its opinion, violates its attributions.

The President of the Council of Ministers, Aníbal Torres, had requested to go to the plenary of Congress to ask for a vote of confidence on a bill by the Executive, but the Parliament rejected the request.

Williams explained that Torres’ request is not acceptable because the aforementioned law develops exclusive and excluding powers for Congress, such as the power to appoint members of state bodies, among others.1008060010080600 Likewise, the holder of Parliament rejected the statements de Torres in the sense that there is “a dictatorship of Congress”.1008060010080600 )Torres qualified the Legislature in this way when he learned of its refusal to receive him in the plenary to present a motion of confidence to the project sent to Congress in April.10080600
