While the military action is taking place on the Panamericana Sur highway, after the blockades and strikes resumed in the Ica area, the delegations of the Quechua and Aymara peoples from the entire Puno region are concentrated in the Plaza de Armas of Juliaca in the 26th day of the indefinite strike.

The police contingent, which has the support of Army and Navy personnel, will relieve the personnel who have already been in the conflict zones for several weeks. Likewise, they will reinforce the work carried out in Ica and Puno.

From the early hours of the morning it was possible to observe the arrival of contingents that demand the departure of the designated president Dina Boluarte, the closure of Congress, and the advancement of the general elections to October 2023.

Juliaca is a Peruvian city, capital of the district of the same name and of the province of San Román, located in the department of Puno.

This Monday also the Congress of the Republic began a session to analyze a legislative project to advance the elections, after last Friday they rejected one that provided for the holding of elections in October.

After 26 days of demonstrations, the Puno region, which served two days in a truce, to resume this Monday the mobilizations aim to spread to various regions of the South American country, including Lima, until Boluarte's resignation is achieved.

On January 27, the Board of Directors of the Puno Regional Federation of Folklore and Culture (FRFCP) agreed to postpone the festivity of the Virgin of Candelaria, as a result of the protests that continue against the government of Dina Boluarte.

The president, who refuses to resign, plans to present a proposal to advance elections to 2023 due to the closure in parliament and another for the "total reform" of the 1993 Constitution.
