S. CON. RES. 155
Whereas democracy in Peru suffered a severe setback when the Government of Peru,
headed by President Alberto Fujimori, manipulated democratic electoral
processes and failed to establish the conditions for free and fair
elections--both for the April 9, 2000, election and the May 28, 2000,
run off--by not taking effective steps to correct the ``insufficiencies,
irregularities, inconsistencies, and inequities'' documented by the
Organization of American States (OAS) and other independent election
Whereas the absence of free and fair elections in Peru has further undermined
democracy in that country and constitutes a major setback for the
Peruvian people and for democracy in the Hemisphere; and
Whereas the fate of Peruvian democracy is a matter that should be decided upon
by the people of Peru: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring),

(1) supports efforts toward restoring democracy in Peru,
including the shortening of the term of Alberto Fujimori, the
recent call for new elections, and the decision to deactivate
the National Intelligence Service (SIN);
(2) is concerned that the same elements which have
systematically undermined democratic institutions in Peru and
which manipulated the electoral process in April and May 2000
remain in power and are in a position to manipulate the
upcoming electoral process; and
(3) supports the efforts of Peruvian democratic civil
society to create the necessary conditions for free and fair
elections, including improving respect for human rights, the
rule of law, the independence and constitutional role of the
judiciary and the national congress, and freedom of expression
and of the independent media.
(b) It is the sense of Congress that--
(1) it should be the policy of the United States to
actively support the aspirations of the democratic political
forces in Peru for a credible transition toward the full
restoration of democracy and the rule of law in Peru, headed by
leaders who are committed to democracy and who enjoy the trust
of the Peruvian people;
(2) it should be the policy of the United States to work
with the international community, including the OAS, to assist
democratic forces in Peru in restoring democracy to their
(3) the Government of Peru should establish a fully
independent and credible election authority and should end all
interference with freedom of speech and the media;
(4) the Government of Peru should fully implement the
recently enacted law deactivating the SIN and the United States
Government should oppose all elements of the Government of Peru
that continue to subvert Peruvian democracy; and
(5) the United States Government should cooperate fully
with any credible investigation of narcotics or arms
trafficking by officials of the Government of Peru.
