If the Plenary denies confidence to the Council of Ministers, President Castillo must accept the resignation of the chief of staff and the other ministers, which must be done immediately, producing a political crisis.

Article 134 of the Constitution provides that the president is empowered to dissolve Congress if it has censured or denied its trust to two Councils of Ministers, a scenario that has not happened so far, however, this is the third cabinet presented by Castillo before resignations of the previous premieres.

In the previous presentations, Guido Bellido obtained 73 votes in favor, 50 votes against and zero abstentions, while Mirtha Vásquez obtained 68 votes in favor, 56 against and 1 abstention.

One of the groups that has not yet adopted a position is Together for Peru, which was an ally of the government until the departure of Mirtha Vásquez from the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (PCM).

Its spokesperson, Ruth Luque, has specified that her group maintains a critical attitude regarding the appointment of Hernán Condori as Minister of Health.

Foreign Minister César Landa said he trusts that Congress, as it did with the Cabinets of Bellido and Vásquez, will grant confidence to Torres "for the good of the country and governance." He added that constitutional democracy is based "on dialogue."

This is also how President Pedro Castillo spoke, who said he hoped that Congress will grant the vote of confidence this Tuesday: "I think the majority of congressmen know that the country comes first and that there is a national agenda for which we have come to attend" .
