During an interview with Carlos Orozco, the current congressman William Bermejo confirmed that he will stand for the 2026 general elections with his political group Voces del Pueblo, which was presented in July of this year.
The current congressman for Democratic Peru He said that he made this decision when he resigned from Peru Libre because He felt that millions of Peruvians who were waiting for the motion of censure against the president of Congress were being “trampled on.” For the legislator, even when they are losing, the citizens expect the left-wing bloc to remain united and faithful to its principles.
In line with the above, Bermejo said that the definitive signal was the hug that Waldemar Cerrón and Maricarmen Alva gave each other in the midst of the accusations and interpellations by both powers of the State. This gesture also generated controversy in the Free Peru party.
This is how Guillermo Bermejo decided to resign from the party that welcomed him: “I want to look for reasons to stay on the bench and honestly I can’t find them,” he wrote on Twitter at that time. This decision, which was applauded by some of his co-religionists, prompted his idea of presenting a new political proposal.
In July of this year, the congressman decided to register a new party called People’s Voices. At the time of its registration, the party had Ronal Attention as president, Jaime Laos in the position of general secretary and Junior Velazco as legal representative. In the presentation of his political group, Bermejo criticized that “people on the left end up embracing the right, that they send each other flowers and compliments and that they vote together.”
