Ros-Lehtinen Comments on Elections in Peru
(WASHINGTON) – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, comments on Peru’s upcoming run-off election after Sunday’s vote. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:
“It is my hope that the people of Peru elect a leader in June that will work to build on the many gains achieved under President Garcia, and continue to lead Peru towards a stable democratic government that honors the rule of law.
“It will also be important that the next government of Peru uphold the democratic and free market principles of that nation, as well as reject any influence of regional despots such as Hugo Chavez and Daniel Ortega.”
