Peru’s Garcia Sayan Pulls Out of Bid for OAS Secretary General

LIMA – Peruvian politician Diego Garcia Sayan has dropped his candidacy for the post of secretary general of the Organization of American States because of lack of support from the Peruvian government.

“I have declined to consider this candidacy because I believe it’s a waste of time,” Garcia told the television channel Canal ATV+ on Wednesday.

The former foreign minister added that he had sent a letter explaining his decision to Peruvian President Ollanta Humala based on what he said was a lack of support from the foreign ministry for his candidacy.

Garcia said that he had received positive reactions to his candidacy during a series of consultations with Latin American and Caribbean governments over the past several weeks, but there did not seem to be the same enthusiasm from his own government.

Peruvian Foreign Minister Gonzalo Gutierrez announced Garcia’s candidacy in August but later told Congress that it was still being evaluated.

The current OAS Secretary-General Jose Miguel Insulza is to step down next May.

There are two other candidates in the running for the post, Uruguay’s Foreign Minister Luis Almagro and former Guatemalan vice president Eduardo Stein.
