The presidential candidate of Christian People’s Party (PPC), Alberto Beingolea, canceled its participation in the cycle of specialized conferences on science, technology and health, organized by the Association of Journalists and Science Communicators (APCIENCIA).
As reported by said institution, the PPC did not send a representative to the event either. Who did it was the applicant of Popular Renovation, Rafael López-Aliaga, which sent Katty Cachay, a candidate for Congress.
“It is unfortunate that when it is important to listen to the proposals of all the candidates on such sensitive issues as science, technology and health, spaces are not used. Although Alberto Beingolea alleges health problems, the absence of an alternate spokesperson for these issues is surprising “, noted APCIENCIA.

“After the presence during the middle of the program by Julio Guzmán, the absence of Rafael López-Aliaga yesterday (sending Katty Cachay as spokesperson) and the cancellation of Alberto Beingolea, with no alternate spokesperson, makes us think that #SinCienciaNoHayFuturo was just a phrase for the cameras “he added.
It should be noted that for this Thursday the presence of George Forsyth (National Victory) and on Friday of Verónika Mendoza (Together for Peru) is scheduled.
“We hope they know how to fulfill their commitment to know their plans in science, technology and health”, sentenced APCIENCIA on its Twitter account.
