www.Larepublica.pe

La República was the first Peruvian daily newspaper to have a digital edition. The page was launched as a repository of news published on the print media. It started with the larepublica.com.pe website and migrated to larepublica.pe in 2008. In 2004 they relaunched the website which allowed easier access to the news. In 2006 a new change was implemented prioritizing the most important news of the day in the first snapshot. A multimedia section was added. News videos could be reproduced with flash. When they moved to the punto.pe domain, they started to update their own news for the website. The La República Group formed a team to write their own stories for larepublica.pe. Its content has a strong political component, which is also accompanied by sensationalist content produced for a clickbait.

Gustavo Mohme Llona

(1930-2000) was founder and director of the newspaper “La República”. Businessman, politician and journalist. He was a civil engineer by profession. In 1955, he founded the construction company "Woodman & Mohme" along with Arturo Woodman Pollit. This company lasted 25 years and built important structures in the north of the country. He was a member of the center party “Acción Popular (Popular Action).” Due to some discrepancies with the president Fernando Belaunde Terry, he founded the division “Acción Popular Socialista (Socialist Popular Action)” in 1967. In 1982 he founded the left-wing newspaper “La República” and, two years later, the tabloid “El Popular.” In 1985 and 1990 he was elected Senator for “Izquierda Unida (Left United).” His work was interrupted by the military coup in 1992, but in 1995 he returned to Congress with Javier Perez de Cuellar’s party, who was the former secretary-general of the United Nations. During this period he was a strong opponent to Alberto Fujimori’s dictatorship both in Congress and in the management of the newspaper. In the final years of the Fujimori regime, he suffered slanderous attacks through the tabloid newspapers, which were funded by the dictatorship. He died in 2000 when he had been reelected congressman. The press room in the Peruvian Congress bears his name, in recognition of his work.
