Hours before Pedro Castillo was sworn in at the Congress, in Lima, and assume the presidency of Peru, the team responsible for the transition announced that the Ministry’s inauguration, also scheduled for this Wednesday, 28, would be postponed to Friday, 30. According to the Peruvian press, the delay is due to uncertainties about the names of the team, in special on the presidency of the Council of Ministers, whose inauguration is scheduled for this Thursday, 29.

The biggest focus of pressure comes from Castillo’s own party, Free Peru. Its leader, Vladimir Cerron, who wants a government more to the left than the one proposed by the new president, defends the name of Róger Nájar, responsible for the Bicentennial Plan, a program for the first 100 days of Castillo’s government.
