President Rejects Prime Minister’s Resignation, Announces Cabinet Changes

PERU
  • Late on Friday, President Pedro Castillo announced, via twitter, that he has rejected the resignation of Anibal Torres and that the Prime Minister would continue working for the country.
  • In yet another cabinet re-shuffle, Castillo named economist Kurt Burneo as the new Economy and Finance Minister during a televised ceremony, replacing Oscar Graham who had held the post since February.
  • The president made an additional five ministerial changes as follows:
    • Miguel Angel Rodriguez Mackay as Foreign Affairs Minister
    • Alejandro Salas as Labor Minister
    • Geiner Alvarado as new Transport and Communication Minister
    • Cesar Paniagua Chacon new Housing Minister
    • Betssy Chavez new Culture Minister
  • The appointment of Chávez as new Culture Minister is notable given this marks her return to the cabinet, after being impeached as Labor Minister by Congress in May.
    • JPMorgan note that Chavez’s appointment is likely to exacerbate the tensions with the Congress, stressing the already very deteriorated relations amid five ongoing investigations on alleged wrongdoing.
  • Separately, Peru’s Congress abused power in denying the President Pedro Castillo’s trip to Colombia, where he intended to attend Gustavo Petro’s inauguration, Castillo’s lawyer Benji Espinoza said in an interview.
    • Congress is interfering with Castillo’s duties as President, Espinoza remarked.
