Flor de María Gonzales Uriola, the General Secretary of the Peruvian Communist Party, died on November 25, at 68 years of age, in the Peruvian capital, Lima.  She had been suffering from respiratory problems for a while. Flor de María Gonzales, who became General Secretary in 2017, was the first woman to head the Communist Party.  She also was a congressional representative for the Frente Amplio (Broad Front), a coalition to which the Peruvian Communist Party and other left-wing parties belong, but her illness prevented her from taking her seat, which will now be held by Katia Gilvonio Condezo of the Socialist Party, a youth and women’s rights activist.
