Peru PM committed to fighting corruption

11:07 | Lima, Apr. 4.

Prime Minister Salvador del Solar on Thursday announced that —during his tenure— he will put emphasis on an integrity approach to fight corruption, an evil —he indicated— is one of the most critical problems in Peru.

"For that reason, our administration will emphasize on an integrity approach we have built and that is present in the 2019-2021 National Plan for Integrity and Fight against Corruption," the official expressed. 

In this sense, he pointed out integrity must be the new sign of public function, since it will guarantee the sustainability of the measures against corruption in the country. 

The high-ranking official attends a Parliament session to present the Government's general policy and request the confidence vote.

Previously, the Prime Minister held meetings with Congress' political groups within the framework of a dialogue round. 

Last March, Salvador del Solar replaced Cesar Villanueva as the Inca country's Prime Minister. He leads a reshuffled cabinet.
