The President of the Council of Ministers, César Villanueva , denied a pact or agreement under the table between the president Martín Vizcarra and the leader of Fuerza Popular, Keiko Fujimori .
In dialogue with Channel N's "20 18" program, he minimized criticism of Vizcarra for refusing the meeting with the former presidential candidate and found that there were more important problems.
"There has never been a pact, there was never anything, there was nothing dark, nothing under the table, it is not a topic of greater importance for the problems we face today," he said.
Villanueva assured that the initiative of the meeting between Vizcarra and Keiko Fujimori he was his, after which he was in charge of coordinating the meeting with the then spokesman Popular Force, Daniel Salaverry.
"I agree with the president that it was a mistake not to comment on those meetings, with the transparency that characterizes them." The lady forgot the reserved agreement of that meeting and now she makes it public The reservation was an agreement of both. Ask her the reason to break the agreement If someone breaks the pact, it will be her decision and she will explain it, "he said.
The prime minister also said that he did not believe that a meeting between Vizcarra and the general secretary of Popular Force, José Chlimper.
"I never spoke José Chlimper, did not intervene at all in the coordination of meetings with the president. I do not think the President has met Chlimper, we have no information on our side that this meeting has taken place, "he emphasized.
"For my part I do not think it happened, I do not know Martin now, I've known him for many years because we fought together for decentralization," he added.
According to Villanueva, the second meeting was favorable Keiko Fujimori. "He was looking for a way to meet the president through the spokesperson (Daniel Salaverry)," he said.
Finally, the Prime Minister also considered "not very elegant" that a President of the Republic should be told which Minister should leave or remain. "At that moment the respective distance was taken", he recalled.
