58% of Peruvians Support the Presidential Vacancy, According to Ipsos


One of the reasons for the discomfort among Peruvians has to do with PPK’s links to Odebrecht.

According to information from Ipsos, cited by La República, president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (PPK) is not improving his image in the polls. Also, “but now a high number of Peruvians are in favor of him being ousted.”, the media said.

El Comercio’s Ipsos survey detailed that only 19% of the people surveyed approve PPK’s management as president of Peru, while 76% disapprove.

One of the reasons for this discomfort among Peruvians has to do with the ex-executive from Odebrecht Jorge Barata’s testimony that assures the Brazilian construction company gave money to Kuczynski’s campaign in 2011.

In addition, the links between the president and Odebrecht has resulted in 58% of respondents who are in favor of the presidential vacancy.

“What is striking about the poll is that only 37% consider that Kuczynski should continue as president of the Republic.”, La República wrote on Sunday.

Already five congressional caucuses have filed a multi-party vacancy motion against PPK to remove him from office because of his ties with Odebrecht.

La República also explains that “it is important to note that the Ipsos survey was conducted from March 7 to 9, 2018, with a sample of 1,254 men and women over 18 years of age. In addition, its margin of error was +/- 2.8%”.
