The Central Lima Special Electoral Jury (JEE) declared inadmissible the lists of candidates for Metropolitan Lima that belong to the Purple Party and Peru Libre due to the infraction of requirements that affect the entire list of applicants.
Thus, in the case of the Purple Party, the payrolls were affected after the replacement of a district candidate from Los Olivos by a provincial one from Lima was declared inadmissible. After this event, the youth quota could not be completed.
For its part, the political group led by Vladimir Cerrón included two candidates on its list who did not give their consent to participate in the upcoming elections. For that reason, not being considered, the list was incomplete.
Both political groupings still have the opportunity to appeal to the National Elections Jury (JNE). That will be the second and last instance of the electoral process.
It should be noted that the appeal must be carried out within three calendar days, counting from the day following the respective notification.
A total of 12 political organizations have presented their lists of candidates for mayor of Metropolitan Lima with a view to the 2022 regional and municipal elections.

So far, five of them have been admitted to the process (Popular Renovation, Somos Perú, Juntos por el Perú and Frente de la Esperanza 2021), two are inadmissible (Purple Party and Peru Libre), three are inadmissible (Patriotic Party del Perú, Alianza para el Progreso and Avanza País) and two appear in reserve (Green Democrat and Faith in Peru).
Taking into account the above, the party lists that are admitted have not yet been registered, since despite meeting all the requirements, they are in the period of cross-outs. At the end of this period, when there is no cross-out, the list will be registered.
The Faith in Peru party, which is led by its candidate for regional governor, Harberth Zúñiga Herrera, is suspended. For this reason, its leader and members of the party staged a protest in front of the headquarters of the Special Electoral Jury (JEE) in Arequipa to revoke the resolution that the plenary session of the JNE ordered on June 15.
“We had suffered and deserved blemishes. The blemishes were not resolved in a timely manner. But the blemishes are not resolved by Faith in Peru, they are resolved by the National Elections Jury, and that process of resolving them passed on the 14th. But the jury cannot be so arbitrary as to say that it did not resolve the blemishes and suspend the registration process. until after October 2022″, said Harberth Zúñiga.
Given this fact, the party filed an appeal with the JNE to revoke the resolution that leaves them out of the elections. In this way, they affirm that they fulfilled all the requirements. In addition, they stated that, in the event that they do not accept the registration of their party, they will continue with the protests.
