Sentenced politicians in the south who cannot run for elections | lrsd |

Peru is going through an institutional crisis due to the corruption of his political class. The proof of it, his last five presidents, they were besieged by trials. To prevent the criminal momentum, they have sought to block the way to those involved in crimes. He President Vizcarra last Monday promulgated a constitutional reform that prevents anyone with a sentence in the first instance from running for a popularly elected office.

With the modification, the sentenced take refuge in the exhaustion of instances to postulate. Critical voices point out that the presumption of innocence is violated: a right is impeded by a ruling that is not yet firm or consented.

Under this figure, a sentenced person as Walter Aduviri apply. The Aymara leader stood in the regional elections of A lots of of 2018, with a sentence of 7 years, but appealed in the Supreme Court (cassation), which maintained the ruling as non-consensual. That was the argument of the Special Electoral Jury of Puno to keep him in the race. The Supreme Court ordered a new trial. Already in the position of regional governor, Aduviri, was found guilty of the aimarazo riots and is now serving a 6-year prison sentence in the Yanamayo prison.

In Arequipa, a direct affected by the norm is the provincial mayor Omar candia, who carries a sentence in the first instance of 6 years, for the crime of aggravated collusion, for the irregular purchase of 40 security cameras when he was burgomaster of the Alto Selva Alegre district. The mayor has an appeal pending in the second instance.

He burgomaster was in favor of the constitutional modification. He notes that he was not planning to apply again. “We congratulate that constitutional reform, it requires that you do not have any sentence in the first instance. Some constitutionalists may question it because it would violate the principle of presumption of innocence, but in the midst of a political crisis this contributes, ”he declared.

Another victim is the former mayor Alfredo Zegarra, sentenced to 4 years in suspended prison (in second instance) for the irregular approval of the Metropolitan Development Plan (PDM). It had been announced for the congressional election of 2021.

Eight exregidores of Arequipa and three former officials are framed within the same ruling. The presentation of a cassation in the Supreme Court will not allow them to run in the following years.

The scope of the constitutional modification would also reach the suspended mayor of Cusco, Victor Boluarte, who carries a sentence of 2 years in prison suspended for fraud in the administration of legal entities.

The constitutional amendment is concise. Notes that they will not be able to apply in charge of popular election people with a sentence in the first instance for intentional crime, whether they are authors or accomplices. It also applies to exercise the public function. However, this is not a permanent disqualification.

Although the new standard does not specify it, sentenced they would regain their rights once the sentence was served. The criminal lawyer Gonzalo Bellido points out that everyone has the right to so-called rehabilitation.

For example, the regional governor of Arequipa, Elmer Cáceres Llica, has intentions to apply for president. He charges two convictions, but he would already be rehabilitated. The first was in 2007, for blocking roads, with a suspended 2-year prison sentence. And in 2016, he also had a suspended sentence of one year and 8 months, for false declaration on his resume.

Bellido recalled that there are exceptions, which indicate the impediment of postulate forever. Law 30717 applies the figure to those sentenced for terrorism, apology for terrorism, illicit drug trafficking or violation of sexual freedom. It also applies to those who committed collusion, embezzlement or corruption of officials.

Public interest

Oscar Urviola,

Former President of the Constitutional Court

There are rights that have to be affected in a mild or intense way, to the extent that it is necessary to preserve others. Just as there is the right to life, the Constitution affects it when it comes to crimes of treason and allows the death penalty. Here it was discussed that it affected the presumption of innocence, in this case we can say that it is an attenuated affectation, because it is also important to preserve transparency and fight against the corruption that affected at all levels.

In a weighing of rights, I believe that the public interest is prevailing, over an individual interest, of wanting to apply or access positions in the public function.

The coronavirus positive who goes to vote by violating the quarantine

A voter of Nardò in the province of Lecce went to vote despite being in quarantine. The man was recognized by other citizens who were aware of his coronavirus positivity and reported to law enforcement. The subsequent investigations by the carabinieri would have confirmed the suspicions about the violation of the anti-Covid regulations by the voter.

The man, a sixty-year-old local, according to what the AGI news agency wrote, after having tested positive for a first swab, while waiting to be subjected to a second test, should not have left home. In the province of Lecce, thanks to the intervention of local police and civil protection volunteers, several special polling stations have been set up that allow voters unable to leave their homes to exercise their right to vote in their homes.

A note from the Region Puglia, after numerous requests for clarification on this specific point had reached the prefectures, meanwhile he clarified that “The pencils used for voting must not be sanitized before and after entering the voting booth in ordinary polling stations, but only in Covid polling stations – hospital or home “. The Puglia Region also makes it known that hand disinfection must be performed before and after the vote and there is an obligation to wear a mask and to observe the social distancing measures. A special protocol has been prepared on this topic, the result of collaboration between the Apulian health companies. In particular, the voter cannot leave the house and go to the polling station in case of respiratory symptoms or body temperature above 37.5 degrees, or if he has been in contact with people positive to Covid-19 in the last 14 days and if is in mandatory quarantine or home isolation.

Bloomberg bombards Florida with ads in support of Biden

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg began to disburse $ 5.4 million to flood Florida’s top ten markets with advertising starting this Friday in support of the candidacy of Democrat Joe Biden and against the re-election of Donald Trump in November next.

Included in the notices is a new version of one that criticizes the Republican’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic that sparked a lawsuit from the Trump campaign.

The resources are part of Bloomberg’s $ 100 million commitment to support the campaign of former Vice President Biden (2009-2017) in Florida, a hard-fought and key state in which both candidates are in a virtual tie in opinion polls.

“If Joe Biden wins Florida, he wins the elections,” the political action committee (PAC) Priorities USA said in a statement, which will launch updated versions of two advertisements already issued this Friday thanks to the Bloomberg donation.

One of them laments the death of almost 200,000 people from COVID-19 in the country “as a result of Trump’s deliberate campaign of disinformation about the virus and his inability to control the spread,” the PAC said in a statement.

The other emphasizes “how far the United States is in mitigating the spread of the virus compared to all other countries in the world.”

Priorities USA has already invested $ 12.5 million in Florida, including television and digital ads in English and Spanish.

“Mike Bloomberg’s support means we can continue the important work of connecting with Florida voters to hold Donald Trump accountable for his utter failure in the fight against coronavirus,” said Guy Cecil, President of Priorities USA.

Biden leads Trump by an average of 5.8 points in national opinion polls, according to the specialized portal Real Clear Politics, but in Florida that distance is only 1.6 points in favor of the former vice president.

As of last July, there were 13.9 million registered voters in Florida, and of those 5.1 million registered are Democrats, 4.9 million Republicans, 3.6 independents and more than 175,000 from other minor parties, according to the Division of Elections. Florida, a state that contributes 29 of the 538 votes of the Electoral College of the country that elects the president.


Belarus closes borders and puts army on alert

The President of Belarus, the target of six weeks of mass protests demanding his resignation, announced that he will put troops on high alert and close the country’s borders with Poland and Lithuania.

Alexander Lukashenko’s decision reinforces the repeated message that the wave of protests is driven by the West, as it faces harsh criticism from the European Union and the United States.

“We are forced to withdraw troops from the street, put the army on high alert and close the borders in the west, mainly with Lithuania and Poland,” said Lukashenko, at an official women’s forum in Minsk.

Lukashenko also said that the Belarusian border with Ukraine will be strengthened.

“I don’t want my country to be at war. Furthermore, I don’t want Belarus, Poland and Lithuania to become a theater of military operations in which our problems will not be solved,” he said.

“So from now on, in front of this hall of the most beautiful, advanced and patriotic people, I want to appeal to the people of Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine: stop your crazy politicians, don’t let the war start“, said.

Lukashenko did not mention neighboring Latvia, which, like Poland and Lithuania, are members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

In the same forum, Lukashenko said that Belarus does not need any country to recognize its elections, in response to the European Parliament resolution, which does not accept the results of the August 9 presidential elections, which Lukashenko won with 80% of the vote and that started a wave of protests.

“We conducted the elections in accordance with the Constitution and the laws of our country and we do not need anyone’s recognition. The elections were held and are legitimate,” he said, according to the BELTA agency.

At this Thursday’s session, the European Parliament agreed that it will fail to recognize Lukashenko as President when the current term ends on 5 November, after elections that “violate all international standards” and called on the European Union to impose sanctions on representative.

“I swear there was no lie in the elections. It is impossible to fake 80% of the elections,” added Lukashenko.

The spokesman for the head of European diplomacy also announced that Belarusian opponent Svetlana Tikhanovskaia is expected on Monday in Brussels for a meeting with European Union foreign ministers.

The opponent announced that it is preparing a list of members of the regime’s security forces responsible for the violence and arbitrary arrests, with a view to possible prosecution in the future.

Belarus has been the scene of several demonstrations since August 9, when Alexander Lukashenko won a sixth presidential term, in elections considered fraudulent by the opposition and part of the international community.

In the early days of protests, the police detained some 7,000 people and cracked down hundreds in a muscular manner, sparking international protests and the threat of sanctions.

The United States, the European Union and several neighboring countries in Belarus rejected Lukashenko’s recent electoral victory and condemned police repression, urging Minsk to establish a dialogue with the opposition.


Trump campaign plans to win without Florida

Read this news in English in the Miami Herald.

President Donald Trump’s campaign envisioned a year ago an electoral scenario in which the president pushed the boundaries of modern electoral politics by winning each state he won four years ago and adding half a dozen others.

With such a victory far removed from reality at the moment, Trump’s advisers have plotted odds in recent weeks that his candidate could lose key states like Florida and even win re-election by conquering several states. in the central region of the country.

One of those probabilities presents Trump losing Florida and Arizona but receiving 270 electoral votes, the minimum necessary to win. The other shows Trump losing North Carolina and Florida and receiving 272 electoral votes.

“We absolutely do not believe that the president is not going to win Florida,” Nick Trainer, Trump’s campaign strategy director, warned reporters during a recent virtual briefing in which he presented possible election maps, including two in which Trump loses Florida.

Campaign Manager Bill Stepien immediately reiterated: “Let me say it again: The President is going to win Florida.”

But with Florida’s registered Democratic voters requesting hundreds of thousands more mail-in ballots than Republicans, overseas ballots coming out Sept. 19, and polls showing a tight race In the nation’s most populous swing state, Trump is seen as a possibility to lose Florida. To that end, the Trump campaign is considering routes to victory that do not include Florida.

A loss in Florida would trigger a set of circumstances that only one Republican candidate in the last 100 years has been able to overcome. President Calvin Coolidge in 1924 lost Florida, but won the national elections.

Without Florida’s 29 electoral votes, Trump would be completely dependent on a trio of states that narrowly won in 2016 – Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania – and would need the electoral votes of at least one additional state it previously lost, such as New Hampshire or Minnesota. , to win a second term.

In all five states, Trump fares worse than Florida, where most polls place him close to Biden within the margin of error. Follow Biden by four or more percentage points in each of them, according to Real Clear Politics.

Even so, the Trump campaign insisted the president could lose a combination of Florida and Arizona, a total of 40 voters, or Florida and North Carolina, a total of 44 voters, and even cross the 270-vote threshold. .

Trump edged out Hillary Clinton in those three states in 2016, winning the presidential election with a total of 306 electoral votes.

“We are convinced that we are no longer in 2004,” Trainer said of a scenario in which Trump loses Florida and North Carolina but still takes the victory. “If President Bush hadn’t won those states on his re-election, he would have been a one-term president. But this president has shown the Republican Party that he is capable of competing in new states. “

Democrats have argued for years that Florida is a firewall against a second term for Trump. “There is no realistic path to a second Trump term without Florida,” states a memo released this month on behalf of the Biden-backed political supercommittee Unite the Country by polling firm GQR.

The firm, which has conducted polls in the state from late August to early September, found that Biden is ahead of Trump in Florida, with a margin of 51% to 46%, thanks largely to black voters. white voters with a college degree and non-Cuban Hispanic voters. Other polls have indicated that the Florida race statistically too close for an accurate forecast.

“Biden’s path focuses on maintaining the support of college-educated white voters and increasing support among non-Cuban Hispanics to the levels that Hillary Clinton had and getting more African Americans to go out and vote,” the memo reads.

Steve Schale, CEO of Tallahassee-based Unite the Country, said in an interview that while it is mathematically possible for Trump to win the election without Florida, it is highly unlikely, given that a loss in Florida likely means that Trump has lost support among Midwestern voters who moved in large numbers to Central Florida and the Tampa area.

“The reality is that for Trump to run without Florida it would require him to win Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania,” he said. “And the odds of that happening without Florida also winning are really low.

“You can come up with numbers that give you victory without Florida, but it is extremely difficult,” he said.

An essential state

Trump has invested heavily in Florida, a state that won by less than 113,000 votes four years ago.

Last year he changed his official residence to Florida, when he frequented his Palm Beach golf club before the pandemic, although he has never lived in Mar-a-Lago.

Trump’s top supporters visit the state weekly as he moves into November 3 with the support of white non-college voters, the elderly, and voters of Cuban and Venezuelan origin. The campaign gave Florida Hispanics the best spots in the Republican convention and they have accused Biden’s campaign of adopting socialist and communist political positions as a central part of their electoral message.

The president has bolstered his campaign strategy with actions from the White House, such as the executive orders he signed over the summer with Governor Ron DeSantis at his side, aimed at reducing the cost of prescription drugs. During a visit to Palm Beach County this month, he extended a moratorium on oil drilling off the coast of Florida.

Despite recent campaign claims that it may lose Florida and regain ground elsewhere, the state is viewed by both parties as key territory.

Biden’s campaign did not directly comment on the question of whether Trump must win Florida to win a second term, focusing instead on his own efforts to convert more voters.

“Although his campaign tries to hide his failed response on the pandemic, which has been at the expense of too many Floridians, Biden’s campaign will continue to focus on winning every vote by investing in big media, organizing and expanding significantly to ensure that we play the Donald. Trump a one-term president, ”said Kevin Muñoz, spokesman for Biden’s Florida campaign.

The two campaigns have set aside a total of more than $ 100 million for television, radio and digital advertising through Nov. 3, according to figures compiled by Advertising Analytics. About half the money goes to the Tampa and Orlando areas, which Biden visited on Tuesday.

As of Tuesday, the Biden campaign had set aside $ 57.7 million on ads, and the Trump campaign had spent $ 50.9 million.

Another $ 37.7 million was invested in the state by political committees such as Priorities USA, favor of Biden, and America First Action, in favor of Trump. The Trump-supporting political supercommittee has pledged to spend $ 12.7 million on ads on broadcast and digital cable television in West Palm Beach and Orlando until the election.

America First Action’s Florida ad purchase is more than the cumulative total of your other general election ad purchases. Last week he announced a $ 9.3 million investment in political advertising in Ohio, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, which Trump won four years ago.

The Trump campaign has pointed to Biden’s spending in states that Democrats won in 2016 as evidence that the candidate is on the defensive, while characterizing Biden’s spending in states like Florida that Trump won as necessary to continue to stay in. the contest.

Rick Gorka, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee, said that while the campaign remains confident that Florida will win, it does not want to leave victory to the state to chance, so it continues to invest a great deal of resources there.

Gorka said the belief that the Republican Party will win in Florida is based on the strength of its grounding message and the reported difficulties Biden’s campaign faces in reaching Hispanic voters.

“Regardless of what the confidence level is or what the polls show, you have to dedicate 100% to those states to ensure their vote,” he added. “And we are going to put all the resources in the state to make sure that happens.”

Bolivia | Interim President Jeanine Áñez resigns her candidacy for the October elections

The interim president of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, announced this Thursday his withdrawal from the presidential race one month before the elections, in an attempt to prevent the triumph of the leftist Luis Arce, the former president’s dolphin Evo Morales.

“Today I put aside my candidacy for the presidency of Bolivia to take care of democracy, “he said Jeanine Áñez in a video released to local media.

“It is not a sacrifice, it is an honor,” he assured, given the risk of dividing the vote against the Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) of Evo Morales and that he “ends up winning the election” on October 18.

The until now candidate for the Together alliance affirmed that her decision seeks to “help the victory of those of us who do not want the dictatorship”, because “If we don’t unite, Morales will come back.”

“If we don’t unite, democracy loses, (…) the dictatorship wins”He added, for which he urged to put aside differences and “build freedom with unity.”

“I want to call for the unity of those who believe in democracy,” he said, while thanking the “understanding” for his decision in “a historic moment.”

Jeanine Áñez he bet because there is “a democratic candidate to confront the MAS”, which he encouraged to defend a series of programs initiated by his interim government.

Áñez She indicated that she will continue as temporary president until the election of a new head of government after the general elections.

The transitory president appeared in the video of about three and a half minutes, accompanied by the candidate of Juntos for the vice presidency, Samuel Doria Medina, several ministers of the interim government and politicians who support Áñez like the mayor of La Paz, Luis Revilla.

The announcement came a day after the widest electoral poll published so far in the country placed it in fourth place in voting intention, far from even being able to contest a second round with the first in the polls, MAS candidate Luis Maple.

The Together alliance is one of the eight candidates that compete in the elections to elect president, vice president, deputies and senators.

Russia’s regional election wins “United Russia” – Abroad – News

He claimed that “United Russia” had also won a majority in all regions in the regional assembly elections.

Meanwhile, the allies of opposition leader Alexei Navalny announced that they had won several victories in Siberia.

In Tomsk, Navalny’s supporters Ksenia Fadeyeva and Andrei Fateyev have won a seat in the city council. Sergei Boyko, another ally of Navalny, is believed to have won a seat in Novosibirsk City Council.

Fateyev said that in Tomsk, thanks to the so-called smart voting system, “United Russia” seems to have won only 12 of the 37 seats in the council.

Tatiana Doroshenko, an official of the local election commission, said that in the 15 years since she was chairing the commission, it was the worst performance of “United Russia” in Tomsk.

The counting of election results is still ongoing and it is not yet clear what effect elsewhere the results have been on the so-called smart voting system, promoted by Navalny, calling for a vote on politicians most likely to defeat United Russia candidates.

It has already been reported that elections took place in several regions of Russia for three days from Friday to Sunday, marked by unprecedented protests in the Far East, the poisoning of Navalny and the escalating economic crisis of the pandemic.

In 41 regions, Russian voters voted for governors and regional assemblies, while four regions also held by-elections to the federal parliament.

The independent election observation organization Golos (“Voice”) reported that observers were denied access to documents and were not allowed to lodge complaints and ballot fraud.

There are also concerns that the previous vote on the new coronavir has facilitated the falsification of election results.


The ruling party retained the governors – Vedomosti

This election was distinguished by the fact that nine out of 18 governors went for re-election at once. For comparison: last year, only three out of 16 were re-elected. In the last elections, the candidates for governors from the authorities defeated their competitors by a significant margin. Alexei Ostrovsky, a member of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia who has been heading the Smolensk Region since 2012, received the least of the governors – 57%. In 2015, he won 65% in the elections.

Igor Kobzev, a Varangian from the Voronezh region, was elected head of the “red” Irkutsk region with 61% of the vote, while his opponent, Communist State Duma deputy Mikhail Shchapov, received 26%. Vedomosti sources close to the presidential administration called the Irkutsk region a region where a second round is possible. According to the interlocutor of Vedomosti in the Communist Party, Shchapov, a man with experience in doing business, has ambitions, but he did not stake on these elections.

In Rostov and Kostroma regions, incumbent governors Vasily Golubev and Sergei Sitnikov were re-elected with a score of 66 and 65%, respectively. In the last elections, Golubev had 78%, while Sitnikov had almost the same result – 66%. Of the re-elected governors, the head of the Leningrad region scored more than in 2015: now he has 84%, five years ago – 82%. Almost the same result as five years ago was shown by the head of the Krasnodar Territory Veniamin Kondratyev: now he scored 83%, in 2015 – 84%. The rest of the governors scored less than in 2015.

Most of the government candidates achieved impressive results – over 70% of the vote. And the highest result can boast of Mikhail Razvozhaev, who in Sevastopol with 86% of votes surpassed even the indicator of President of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov, for whom 83% voted.

Political analyst Alexander Kynev says that there was a complete sterilization of ballots in the gubernatorial elections: “The competitors were in absolutely controlled regions like the Kuban, and where elections are more or less fair, like the Arkhangelsk and Irkutsk regions, there were essentially no competitors. The communist Mikhail Shchapov has conducted a very weak campaign in the Irkutsk region. “

Local competition

In 11 legislative assemblies where elections were held, United Russia is gaining a majority. Political analyst Alexander Pozhalov notes that the turnout in the elections to the Legislative Assembly, despite the three-day voting, turned out to be lower or almost the same as five years ago: “That is, in competitive party elections for United Russia and the authorities, it is still more convenient tactics – not to engage in continuous mobilization and not to raise the status and significance of the elections of deputies in the public consciousness, but to involve only “our own”, even at the cost of a declining turnout ”.

According to the City Duma, the situation is different. In several cities, United Russia lost control of parliaments. In Tomsk, 37 mandates were played. United Russia received only 11 mandates. During the elections to the City Duma, Alexey Navalny’s project “Smart Voting” was launched. Ksenia Fadeeva, the coordinator of Navalny’s headquarters in Tomsk, wrote on Facebook that out of the 27 won seats in the constituencies, at least 19 were Smart Vote candidates. Fadeeva herself and an employee of the headquarters Andrei Fateev became deputies of the City Duma. An interlocutor in United Russia says that the situation with Navalny affected this result. On the day of the “poisoning”, the politician flew out of Tomsk, where he was conducting an investigation before the elections.

“Smart voting” also influenced the results of the elections to the City Duma of Novosibirsk. In the City Duma 22 seats went to United Russia, eight to the Communist Party, eight to self-nominated candidates, five to the Liberal Democratic Party, one each to Rodina and the Greens, and five seats to members of the Novosibirsk-2020 coalition, supported by Navalny. In particular, the coordinator of the Novosibirsk headquarters of Navalny, Sergei Boyko, entered the city duma. In the elections to the Legislative Assembly of the Novosibirsk region, United Russia has a majority. Here, “Smart Voting” often supported candidates who went against the Communist Party.

Also a surprise was the voting in the elections to the Tambov City Duma – there, according to the lists and constituencies, the Rodina party won. According to the lists, she gained 44% of the votes, and out of 18 constituencies, her candidates won in 17. At the same time, Governor Alexander Nikitin, head of the regional branch of United Russia and re-elected for a new term, gained 81% in the region.

According to the head of the Political Expert Group, Konstantin Kalachev, the United Russia brand stopped working in cities as it did after its appearance: when it was still new, Putin’s party was doing well in cities. Now there are more problems with cities in power: where there are more free, administratively independent people, where elections are more transparent. In addition, the situation is aggravated by intra-elite divisions and conflicts, says Kalachev and cites the example of Tambov. In Tambov, Rodina, which won the City Duma elections, is headed by former city manager Maxim Kosenkov, expelled from United Russia in 2008 (accused of kidnapping).

United Russia did a good job in the elections to the Legislative Assembly – somewhere there is a slight loss of mandates compared to 2015, says the head of the Civil Society Development Fund Konstantin Kostin: “But everywhere the result is an increase in comparison with the starting rating at the beginning of the campaign, and first place in the lists and the majority in the districts ”. According to legislative assemblies, United Russia has a median fall of about 10% compared to 2015, while there were several failed campaigns on the city councils of Tambov, Tomsk, Novosibirsk, notes Kynev: “In Novosibirsk and Tomsk, 5-7% of the candidates added“ Smart vote “Navalny, which is directly proportional to the popularity of the politician in these cities. For the rest of the regions, the effect was small. For example, in Vladimir, United Russia won all the constituencies. Where the city is small, and where there is no strong headquarters, there is no effect from “Smart Voting”. “
