The ill effects of the PT governments in Brazil still linger in Latin America

The massive corruption scandals exposed by Lava Jato (Car Wash) operation, the name given to the money laundering investigations that began in 2014 that involved the corruption scheme put in place by Workers’ Party (PT), continue to impact several Latin American countries.
 

After Brazilian contractor Odebrecht agreed to a collaboration agreement with the Peruvian justice system, corruption scandals in Peru have already dragged four former presidents into crisis, as well as the leader of the opposition Keiko Fujimori.

In April 2019, Alan Garcia, one of the former Peruvian presidents named in the collaboration agreement, committed suicide during a police attempt to arrest him.
 

Still amid allegations of corruption, the Peruvian congress approved on 09 November 2020 the impeachment of then-President Martín Vizcarra Cornejo.
 

Manuel Merino, head of the Peruvian Congress, took over the country’s presidency the following day with the challenge of holding the general elections scheduled for April 2021.
 

The disastrous governments of former Brazilian presidents Lula and Dilma, both from the Workers' Party, continue to generate ill consequences in Brazil and Latin America.
 

They have guaranteed their place in the history of the Latin American left.
