On channel N, Muñoz indicated that the demonstrations of the political parties go against the norms and considered that the National Police does not want to take, apparently, “an extreme decision or putting yourself at risk”.

I believe that there we have a great problem from the base in the two parties that are still in competition and we should not encourage these meetings or agglomerations, they are going against the normative decision of not having this type of actions”Said the mayor of Lima.

And I take advantage of making a call to Ministry of Interior, because the Ministry of the Interior is being very passive in controlling the streets and we need a much more defined and determined activity on the part of the Police for better control of the streets, it seems that they do not want to reach an extreme decision or put at risk, but without reaching it, we must make the exercise of control of the streets effective”He added.

Without authorization

Through his Twitter account, the Municipality of Lima (MML) reported that it did not authorize the installation of a stage in Plaza Bolognesi, in Cercado de Lima, where the Fuerza Popular rally was held on Saturday, June 26. He even revealed that the organizers of the event prevented the watchmen from removing the structures.

Serenazgo staff went to the place to avoid the installation of the same, but the organizers of the demonstration disrespected our impediment”, He indicated.

Unfortunately we did not have the support of the police personnel who were in the area. Notwithstanding this, we will apply the corresponding sanctions”Added the Municipality of Lima.
