Rate this post

The Congress of Peru declared this Thursday persona non grata to the Bolivian ex-president Evo Morales "for their constant incitement in national politics" which, always in Parliament's opinion, seek to "unbalance the internal order of the country."

The motion to declare Morales persona non grata had the favorable vote of 74 congressmen, while 40 parliamentarians voted against and 4 abstained.

Through said motion, they express the "forceful rejection of the constant public statements of meddling and interference in matters that are within the internal jurisdiction of Peru" by Morales.

On January 9, the Government of Peru had prohibited the entry into the country of Morales and eight other Bolivian citizens, whom it accuses of having carried out "activities of a political proselytizing nature" that have affected the "National security" from the country.

"In recent months, foreign citizens of Bolivian nationality have been identified who entered the country to carry out activities of a proselytizing political nature, which constitutes a clear affectation of our immigration legislation, national security and the internal order of Peru" , remarked the Ministry of the Interior (Mininter) in a statement.

On the other hand, the Foreign Relations commission of Congress declared Morales persona non grata in November 2021 "for his negative political activism in Peru and his evident interference and meddling in the government's agenda" of then-president Pedro Castillo (2021-2022 ).

Evo Morales (2006-2019) maintained an active presence in Peru, especially in the southern regions of the country, during the Castillo government with the aim of encouraging the integration of regions such as Puno into runasur projectthe international platform of social and indigenous movements that it promotes.

The ex-governor has been very active on social networks with opinions on the crisis in Peru and messages to defend Castillo since his dismissal by Congress after attempting a self-coup on December 7.
