Peru’s Congress today approved the new cabinet headed by Juan Jimenez, the third head of the Council of Ministers, the President Ollanta Humala, by 72 votes in favor, 38 against and two abstentions, after a marathon session from Monday by the attacks that lawmakers lavished.

Voted for the new cabinet the government benches and opposition forces warned that its position was not a blank check to the government, while the votes were mainly supporters of former President Alberto Fujimori, who represents the force located more right, DPA news agency said.

Jimenez, 48, a lawyer who is perceived as centrist government offered dialogue but it will not be weak against extremists, a strengthening of public safety, a deepening and consolidation of social programs and a fight against corruption .

He requested national unity before the demand for maritime boundary with Chile that is processed in the International Court in The Hague and is in the final stretch.

The filing cabinet, which took office in July, coincided with the unveiling of two alleged journalistic corruption-signing contracts with the State by a company owned by a brother of President Ollanta Humala, Alexis, and benefit programs poor social ends by people who are not-which became more heated debate.

The first case, Jimenez said that the government will not provide protection and if Alexis Humala is guilty will be punished, while in the second blamed the municipal district, which are responsible for forming the list of beneficiaries.

However, Fujimori were constantly on the attack, while ruling denied the moral authority to make criticism that there was corruption in the government of their leader (1990-2000). The debate was interrupted several times by mutual insults.

If the cabinet had not been approved, which was dismissed by experts beforehand, Humala would have formed a new one, because parliamentary approval is a step that must be met during the first month of office of each new Council of Ministers .

Jimenez, the third president of the Council of Ministers in just one year in office of Humala, was preceded in office by businessman Salomon Lerner Ghitis, who attempted to make an eclectic management, and the retired officer Oscar Valdes, who gave a more focused management clockwise.
