45% of Peruvians would support a new Government of Joe Biden over one of Donald Trump in the next general elections in the United States, which will be held in November of this year.

According to the latest Datum International survey, a greater number of respondents would vote for the leader of the Democratic party, compared to the former Republican president, while 26% stated that they did not have an answer.

The same study establishes that Peruvians consider Biden the second world leader who generates the most sympathy (16%), above the Argentine president, Javier Milei (7%).

Likewise, respondents place the United States as the second “friendliest” country to Peru, only below Argentina. However, the North American nation remains in first position with respect to the country that is most admired and from which greater investment is desired.

In dialogue with Tradethe former Minister of Economy, David Tuesta, assured that regardless of political ideology, Peruvians keep in mind that powerful economies are capable of investing and generating employment.

“Regardless of how each Peruvian calls themselves, what is clear is that they would like these economies to be in their country, producing,” he pointed out.

It is also highlighted that Nayib Bukele, the head of state of El Salvador, generates greater sympathy among Peruvians among leaders at the Latin American level, with 42%. However, complaints are known about the violation of human rights within his regime and even about having transgressed the constitution of his own country to get re-elected.

The internationalist Francisco Belaunde commented to the same medium that this support is clearly due to the issue of crime, which is why he has become someone “whose popularity goes beyond El Salvador.” “He has become a reference character, precisely due to the fact that everyone has this problem of fighting insecurity,” he stressed.

The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee criticized the Peruvian Congress for attempting to weaken independent institutions. Through a publication in Twitterthe committee chairman, the Democrat Ben Cardinexpressed concern about the “efforts of the Peruvian Congress to replicate Russian and Nicaraguan-style laws that restrict civil society.”

The statement was made in reference to the recent approval of a bill in the Foreign Relations Commission of Parliament to supervise the resources received by NGOs and modify the Law creating the Peruvian Agency for International Cooperation (APCI). The proposal was approved with 12 votes in favor and one against, being supported by several legislators from the Fujimori party, such as Alejandro Aguinaga and Ernesto Bustamante.

The only opponent of the measure, Luis Kamiche, argued that this regulation could affect the constitutional right of free association, which is why it suggested reaching a consensus with the NGOs and other entities involved. Aguinaga, who is also president of the commission, stated that in reality they are seeking “transparency and guaranteeing the good use of APCI resources.”

Up to 13 international embassies and delegations, including the European Union, expressed their concern through a joint statement on Twitter/X. In their message, they highlighted that democracies are more inclusive and prosperous when civil society is empowered. The statement was signed by the representation of countries such as Germany, Australia and Canadaamong others.

For his part, the president of the Council of Ministers, Gustavo Adrianzen, responded by saying that Peru is an independent republic and that the Government has the power to regulate and modify laws. He added that Foreign Minister Javier González-Olaechea will call a meeting with the representatives of the countries that signed the statement upon his return.
