                   IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

   Expressing the sense of Congress that the President of the United 
    States should encourage free and fair elections and respect for 
                           democracy in Peru.

Whereas presidential and congressional elections are scheduled to occur in Peru 
        on April 9, 2000;
Whereas independent election monitors have expressed grave doubts about the 
        fairness of the electoral process due to the Peruvian Government's 
        control of key official electoral agencies, systematic restrictions on 
        freedom of the press, manipulation of the judicial processes to stifle 
        independent reporting on radio, television, and newspaper outlets, and 
        harassment and intimidation of opposition politicians, which have 
        greatly limited the ability of opposing candidates to campaign freely; 
        and
Whereas the absence of free and fair elections in Peru would constitute a major 
        setback for the Peruvian people and for democracy in the hemisphere, 
        could result in instability in Peru, and could jeopardize United States 
        antinarcotics objectives in Peru and the region: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That it is the sense of 
Congress that the President of the United States should promptly convey 
to the President of Peru that if the April 9, 2000 elections are not 
deemed by the international community to have been free and fair, the 
United States will modify its political and economic relations with 
Peru, including its support for international financial institution 
loans to Peru, and will work with other democracies in this hemisphere 
and elsewhere toward a restoration of democracy in Peru.
