Pedro Castillo, Presidential Candidate  –  a Welcome Change for the Government of  Peru

by Jane Rosenstein and Javier Jara Cruz



On Sunday, June 6, 2021 an important election for the President of Peru will be held.

It is estimated that 65% of the voters will turn out.

Pedro Castillo, a farmer and  a school teacher of literature who frequently wears a wide brimmed straw hat  is a candidate with a special message

“Equality and Rights for all People without  Corruption.” He wants to change the constitution to protect the rights of people. He was rather unknown until he led a 80 day teacher strike four years ago  to demand more pay and the repeal of an unpoplular evualation of teachers’ performances.


Peru is an important country because sales of  its minerals : copper,  gold, silver , lead and zinc provide 10% of GNP.

Castillo says he will increase the amount of the budget for health and education to 10%.

He will withdraw Peru from the American Convention on Human Rights known also as the San José Pact. He will renouce his presidential salary and live on his teacher’s salary.

  1. Very interesting, Jane. And this marks a departure for you from French culture into foreign politics, I think, unless I have missed some columns.
