Humala managed to hold 20 decentralized sessions during his first two years in office, a figure that had not been exceeded to date. In less than four months, the government of Pedro Castillo has held 17 of these events. The Decentralized Councils of Ministers managed to halt the decline in the president's popularity in the places where his main electoral base is located. The Executive has made a total of 238 promises in 15 of the 17 decentralized cabinets made since April of this year.
One of them was the presentation of a bill that authorizes submitting the call to a Constituent Assembly to draft a new Constitution to a referendum. The initiative was rejectedin Congress in the first south africa phone number list instance, without allowing a debate in plenary. Faced with Parliament's rejection of a key promise for the government's support base, the president of the Council of Ministers Aníbal Torres declared: "Congress has already resolved, it has already ruled and that, of course, ends there. We will see what the population will do, but we have complied with a mandate from the population pronounced in these decentralized councils.
Indeed, the issue has not been promoted again by the Executive. It is important to point out that the government's initiative left a large sector of the population baffled, because, for months, the government had repeatedly ruled out promoting a Constituent Assembly. Undoubtedly, the announcement did not imply a return to his campaign proposals, but, on the contrary, a kind of discursive "flight forward". This type of accusation contributes to the polarization of the country, the only scenario in which the president can find, somewhat paradoxically, some stability. Despite the fact that less than four months have still passed since the first of these sessions, the expectations of the population, seeing no progress in the execution of government promises, are quickly turning into great disappointment.
