Peru President: Ratification of anti-corruption fight resulted in approval rise

18:07 | Sullana (Piura region), Jun. 13.

President Martin Vizcarra on Thursday affirmed the 13 percentage-point increase in his approval rating was due to the ratification of his commitment for the fight against corruption, and not to the confrontation with the Legislative Branch.

According to the Head of State, his administration's work does not depend on polls, which sometimes show a rise in his approval numbers and —other times— a decrease.

"That (polls results) does not motivate us to change our attitude. We maintain the same attitude concerning the priorities we have as the Government (…)," he expressed. 

As is known, the Vizcarra administration relies on the following axes: fighting corruption, maintaining the economic growth, as well as implementing programs linked to the social, health, education, and sanitation spheres.

Peru currently hosts at least 800,000 Venezuelans.
