Pedro Castillo took office yesterday calling for a new constitution and a crackdown on monopolies in financial services and utilities.
He said Peru needs to recover sovereignty over its natural resources, renegotiate its free trade deals and said he’ll turn the official presidential residence - which is named after the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro - into a museum
He pledged to respect the nation’s economic model and private property, and said the economy needs order and predictability to prosper.
Castillo had been scheduled to swear in his ministers following the presidential inauguration. But he still hadn’t named any of them yesterday and he postponed the ceremony to tomorrow.
