Lima mayor, Susana Villarán, has asked president Alan García to consider moving the location of the new statue, known as "Christ of the Pacific," saying the statue will affect the view of the Morro Solar.

The president of the Council of Ministries Rosario Fernández said the work has received the necessary authorizations from the authorities and disagreed with the mayor in her response Monday afternoon.
