Pedro Castillo is the third president with the least approval in Latin America

The international image of President Pedro Castillo is not the best. The six investigations that he has in the Public Ministry, the instability in his government and the constant attacks against the institutions and the media that uncover acts of corruption have caused various foreign analysts to disapprove of his work in the highest position of the country.

According to a survey by Ipsos Peru, published by the newspaper El Comercio, after a survey of 297 opinion leaders from 12 Latin American countries, it shows that the Peruvian president only has 15% disapproval. This is somewhat higher compared to other of his counterparts whose leftist tendency he shares, such as the rulers of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, and of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, with 14% and 5%, respectively.

On the other hand, there are also other data from the survey. 60% classify Peru as a ‘deficient democracy’, 18% as a ‘hybrid regime’, and 16% as a ‘full democracy’. For their part, in relation to the economic situation, 56% said that it is bad, 26% that it is good, and 10% that it is very bad.

In addition, 64% believe that inflation in Peru will increase in the next year. This percentage is the third highest after Argentina, with 85%, and Venezuela, with 72%.

Approval goes up and disapproval goes down

This Friday, a survey carried out by the CPI showed a reduction in disapproval of the management of the President of the Republic, Pedro Castillo, by almost four percentage points. From 75% in June it went to 71.1% in August. While his approval increased slightly from 19.5% to 22.6%, in the same months. 6.3% do not specify.

For Omar Castro, general manager of CPI, this reduction in disapproval and a slight increase in approval of the president occurs mainly in Lima and would have to do with the promises made in the presidential message with issues such as free admission to universities and issues in citizen security such as the offer to form security brigades.

However, he stressed that “the president has a great ally that is the opposition” that already has a member of the Board of Directors sentenced (Wilmar Elera) and another accused of rape (Freddy Díaz). The Legislative is seen as the natural enemy of the Executive, he indicated.

Castro explained that where the head of state has grown the most in approval is in Metropolitan Lima, where it went from 7.4% (June) to 14.5% (August). “That is the novelty”, he said in RPP News.

Victimization

In addition, he warned that this survey does not include the preliminary arrest of the president’s sister-in-law, Yenifer Paredes, and the “victimization” that he sees in the government after the latest advances in the investigation against the head of state carried out by the Prosecutor’s Office.

“Then the fact that the president’s sister-in-law, due to news that came out in less than two months, is arrested, is searched for in the Palace can help victimization by the president and that people understand that beyond the action that can come from the prosecution, there is also a political game, “said Omar Castro.

In addition, he considered that the head of state may be using this situation to achieve victimization that will help him improve his valuation numbers.

Thanks support

On the other hand, President Castillo thanked the governments of Argentina, Ecuador, Bolivia and Mexico for supporting his government and democracy. So far, the Prosecutor’s Office, led by Patricia Benavides, has six pending investigations against the head of state for the alleged crime against public tranquility, promotions in the Armed Forces, influence peddling in Petroperú, the alleged plagiarism of his thesis , the Puente Tarata III case and for the alleged crime of personal concealment.

Through his Twitter account, the first authority of Peru wrote the following: “I thank the presidents Alberto Fernández, Luis Arce, Guillermo Lasso and Andrés Manuel López Obrador, from the brother peoples of Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador and Mexico for the support for the consolidation of our democracy and government against the maneuvers of anti-democratic sectors”.
