Buenas noches amigos, today I'm going to write in English becouse my Spanish is "un poco Malo", but mainly for all my peruvian readers, I've show in posts just how thankful I'm of them, I keep track of my readers and the country of Peru totals about 90% of world wide views, I have to be honest besides countries like Venezuela, Cuba or Brasil I'm very ignorant on Latin America democracy and laws. This post in no way articulates a specific political view, but more of a research I made.
I will leave historical events apart and focus on the present.
So from what I found, Peru is a free democracy where the president holds a lot of power being advised by a council of ministers, voting is obligated in law (excellent).
It's a very beautiful country, the economy is booming with investor from all over the world but according to BBC UK and I quote "The country is still trying to come to terms with the trauma of a two-decade conflict - roughly from 1980 to 2000 - between the state and leftist guerrilla groups". Tackling corruption has been a issue that led to the resignation of Pedro Pablo Kuczynski the former president.
The international drug policies lead the country to be one of the biggest cocaine manufacturer. What tools are in hand to fight this situation? The independent call it a "narco state" , and it's very hard not only to keep surveillance on the drug lords as its also difficult to keep farmers from producing their main income.
Don't want to sound rude to the readers as I'm simply a gringo who doesn't live in the reality they do, but from what I gather, corruption is a big issue, a better structure of democratic laws allowing the people to have more power and leadership would benefit the country a lot(trust me I wish we had it here). A more left wing aproach is unfortunately very unlikely due to the lethal conflicts and actions of the past. Any kind of left wing action is viewed as an act of terrorism. It's propaganda working basically.
Talk to me like a child and share anything I might have wrong, is Peru situation like this article I found and quote? "over half of the population live in poverty. Social discrimination and inequality are widespread" or its a exaggeration? I'm not naive but would like some clarification! be a voice please!
I know I didn't detail much, but that's what I got.
