9:05 pm
support the popular kitchens. these are the kitchens that draw the women that joined together in poor neighborhoods to cook together to feed their families because they don't have enough money to feed it to feed their families themselves. so there are only 2000 popular kitchens here in lima, but they are throughout the country. and this is a very important way for people to be able to eat something of crucial her stops. now, how will he do that? how will he do all these changes? well, it will be difficult not only with, with an appeal, it will it be an uphill battle. i think he will have to to go through road blocks because the congress, which is needed to pass all these reforms he wants to do is led by the opposition. the opposition has one. he was unable to form a coalition to direct congress. and so he will have to deal with the right
9:06 pm
wing opposition congress with many people from those legislators and, and, and politicians from those ranks who have in the past few weeks, even called the for a kuda top. this is the strong opposition that he will have in congress. so all these promises we will see if he will be able to deliver him. all right, thank you. marianna sanchez across developments there from lima. was jason ma. zach is director of the electric account souls. adrian, osh, latin america center, he joins us live from washington, d. c, via assume that. thank you for your time. as a correspondent, marianna was saying the congress is fractured. no single party has a majority, but rather an opposition lives has control. what do you think that's going to mean for the new president pedro casteel? well, i think today is of course, historic day and group, of course,
9:07 pm
because you're ticked officer presidency less than 10 days after he's actually declared, president elect and the proving congress. as we've seen over the course of the last couple years, the last years specifically has really found its power shortage muscle. and so far as we're moving presidents had the state of which we didn't agree with with him not having any type of majority of the opposition coalition, leading the proving congress. it's really, i think, force present castillo tap to try to temper some of his messages. some of his plans because of the opposition, he's going to run into, into the proving congress not only for his implementation of the agenda, but also to ensure the continuation of his presidency. the he doesn't fall victim as many of his predecessors have recently to being thrown up by the caribbean congress and the casino gave his his maiden speech just in the past hour. what were your sort of main takeaways from what he had to say? what kind of door does it tell us about how he plans to approach his presidency?
9:08 pm
why i think he's approaching this presidency his campaign page, because he was a political nearby. nobody knew who the name pedro castillo until a few months ago. he has to approach his presidency from a who, as his campaign was doing what he can for the peruvian people. approving people who feel forgotten for quite some time in peru. but that's only been magnified because of code. i think it's pretty important for your viewers to know the crew has the world's highest cobra death. rich people are suffering tremendously from coverage in peru is vital, or he was just as it, his challenger to the campaign for more vaccination or vaccination, improved by the new year. that is going to be fundamental important that the us centrally a few weeks ago to billy dos, the pfizer and i was to my supervisor vaccine. approve is getting back in some other places. well, those vaccines are fundamental distribution. those vaccines are fundamental and it's, it is critical that those vaccines reached not just the wealthy,
9:09 pm
whether they reach the poor, the forgotten, the ones who have been suffering the most. and the most of the panoramic some have had, you know, quite serious fear is that the new president is so far to the less that he may in fact be communist. why a people worried about that? and how was he tried to lay those fizz? well that, that was going into the 1st round of voting. his message was much more on the extreme elements talking about your correspondence. noted talking about nationalization of different firms, talking about wholesale remake, the proving constitution. now in order to gain those necessary, the 2nd row, he moderated his message to appeal to a border group of previous a question now is how he actually governed who will actually be pulling the levers behind him. that is, that is unclear without a long standing political career. how will he govern what,
9:10 pm
who will be influential and making his decisions that is all going to then figure into what his actual plan of action and that, and again, to your earlier comments, what happens with regards to proving congress? what can you actually move forward and the congress, but he knows the history of his country. he's seeing what's happened to heads of state that came at loggerheads with approving congress. and i hope correspond to avoid that. all right, thank you very much for your, for your time, for your analysis there. jason mazacco. there is a new turn into new z as political crisis with revelations 3 parties are being investigated. the judiciary investigation was opened almost 2 weeks before president said used emergency pals to dismiss the prime minister and freeze parliament, though the case doesn't appear to be linked to size actions. it puts more pressure on the president's main. opponents judges are looking into with it in order the largest party in the governing coalition and others wrongly received phone funds

9:14 pm
the industry that faced bankruptcy. if they didn't, it is a big deal for tourism. the majority of inbound tourism to this country comes from the you and the united states. and so yes, that will be very please bars. johnson will be pleased as well. he was worried that the, the u. k. risk losing out in the flow of tourism from the united states to its neighbors in the people prefer to go to capital capital like a roman parish because they weren't able to travel here without warranty. well, that's all changed now, u. s. and e u citizens can now escape quarantine at traveling in to england. the other nations of the u. k. will likely follow suit in due course quite apart from the issues that he raises in terms of the potential import of new and dangerous variance is a great paranoia here about that. and the loose thing a board is, will raise some questions there. there is a course, the question of reciprocity. does it mean that travel is therefore opened in both

9:18 pm
that presidents amused who has been getting how covet 19 johnson and johnson injection a clear departure from the policies implemented by how predecessor john munger fool who died in march from heart problems was one of the handful of wild leaders who downplayed the threat of the pandemic and shined world health organization coals for masks and social distancing. he also rejected vaccines, insisting the disease could be dealt with by prayer and local remedies. when president hassan was warning, she said things would change. mean me man, i am a mother of 4 children, a grandmother, a wife, and a president, and commander in chief of townsend. you know, i would not take the vaccine and sacrifice my life if it was harmful. when i have all these responsibilities and people who depend on me, the countries in its 3rd wave of the disease officially has so far recorded only 29 deaths and 858 cases. this is the beginning of
