Martín Vizcarra

The popularity of the president of Peru, Martín Vizcarra, has fallen four points in the last month and stands at 56 percent, far from the rebound in October when the president ordered the dissolution of Congress and call early elections.

This is included in a survey of the firm Ipsos for the newspaper ‘El Comercio’ and, according to which, one in three people interviewed disapproves of Vizcarra’s management, which in recent months has openly faced the opposition majority that controlled the Congress.

Respondents perceive Vizcarra as a respectful leader with their rivals (74 percent), competent (62 percent) and dialogue (54 percent), while the president receives his worst grades when he asks citizens if he takes the decisions following a technical criterion (43 percent) or is populist (42 percent).

At a general level, the Government has the support of only 34 percent, a low but higher figure than the permanent commission established after the dissolution of Congress, which enjoys the support of 20 percent. For its part, the popularity of the judiciary is around 25 percent.

The survey, based on 1,209 interviews, has a margin of error of 2.82 percentage points.
