In dialogue with ‘Political Agenda’, Galarreta assured that the representatives of Peru Libre have had “a very closed position” and only want to hold a presidential debate.

There is a very closed position in relation to the presidential debate. Today they even said that the Chota debate is already one and only one more would be missing. Last week they said that the Chota debate already counted as one of the JNE. I do not know if they coordinate or talk with the candidate Castillo, but the Chota debate the time, the day, the place, the topics were put by Mr. Castillo“, Held.

We have indicated that the initial proposal of the JNE that there are four debates, but there are four debates related to the presidential candidates and I believe that it is something logical and reasonable compared to what is going to be defined on June 6. This is the original JNE proposal. We have stated that we want to participate in all the debates, in the case of Peru Libre, they have indicated that they consider a single presidential debate sufficient“, he pointed.
