0

Peruvian President Ollanta Humala and First Lady Nadine Heredia were named the country’s ‘most powerful’ figures in a survey conducted by Ipsos Apoyo.

The 32nd Encuesta del Poder (‘Power Survey’), found that the presidential couple are seen as the most powerful figures in Peru.

According to El Comercio, Humala and Heredia were followed by Minister of Finance Luis Miguel Castilla, Nobel-Prize winning author Mario Vargas Llosa, former-President Alan Garcia, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, Prime Minister Juan Jimenez, businessman Dionisio Romero, Buenaventura CEO Roque Benavidez, and former-President Alejandro Toledo.

However, the survey also found that ex-President Toledo placed first on the ranking of Peruvians who should retire from politics.

Semana Economica editor Gonzalo Zegarra presented the preliminary results Sunday on ‘Cuarto Poder’, and said the difference between Humala (82 percent) and Heredia (80 percent) was within the margin of error.

"It’s really a virtual tie," Zegarra said.

The survey also named which members of Humala’s cabinet had the highest approval: Finance Minister Luis Miguel Castilla, Minister of Environment Manuel Pulgar-Vida, Minister of Development and Social Inclusion Carolina Trivelli, Minister of Agriculture Milton Von Hesse, and Minister of Housing and Construction Rene Cornejo.
