Following the announcement by the President of Peru, Pedro Castillo, that he was temporarily dissolving his country’s Congress, several Cabinet ministers announced through social networks that they were leaving their posts.
Kurt Borneo, Minister of Economy and Finance; Alejandro Salas, Minister of Labor; Félix Chero Medina, from Justice and Human Rights; César Landa, from Foreign Affairs; and Wilbert Rozas, from Environment, were the first officials to communicate their decisions.
Having violated the rule of law and in line with my democratic principles, I present my irrevocable resignation from the position of Minister of Economy and Finance.

Consistent with my principles and with full respect for democracy, I have submitted my resignation from the Ministerial Cabinet. I appreciate having served the country during the time that I was in charge of the Culture and Labor portfolios.

Respectful of the democratic institutionality and before the announcement of the closure of Congress and the formation of a national emergency government, I irrevocably resign from my position as Minister of Justice and Human Rights.

In strict adherence to my convictions and democratic and constitutional values, I have decided to irrevocably resign from the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs, given President Castillo’s decision to close the Congress of the Republic, violating the Constitution.

Faced with the declared emergency regime and ratifying my democratic commitment, I present my resignation from the position of Minister of the Environment. I do not agree with the coup wherever it comes from.
