"I will defeat Humala at the ballot boxes. With Maradona or without him."
- Peruvian presidential candidate Alan Garcia, after learning that Maradona will come to a campaign rally in Lima in May to endorse and support his nationalist opponent Ollanta Humala (April 26, 2006)

"Are we an Andean Community or are we not? At least I'd call it bigamy - in our culture you cannot be married twice, you have to divorce first or at least be separarted."
- Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez, after Peru signed a Free-Trade agreement with the USA, hoping that Humala will become peruvian president and nullify the treaty (April 26, 2006)

"I'm obliged to consider it out of solidarity with our friend Evo. I will reconsider if Peru and Colombia reconsider, too"

- Bolivian president Evo Morales on Venezuala's withdrawl from the 'Community of Andean Nations'. And Hugo Chavez' response (April 23/24, 2006)

"For years I've been saying that the Andean Community is dead. Right now, I'm president of the Andean Community. And what am I president of? Of a big lie. Above all now that Colombia and Peru have signed a free trade agreement with the United States, in this it's true that they finished killing it."
- Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez (April 20, 2006)

"No. I have never used the word admiration. I admire the life of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King."

IICR, when Marta CHavez said that, it was Nadine Heredia who defended Lourdes. I could be wrong, but I think I am not.

I saw her saying that on a campaign stage last night on Bayly's "El Frankotirador".
I don't think it had anything to do with Martha Chavez.

I remembered! I think it was Elianne Karp who said that few months ago about Lourdes, and Nadine defended her.
