Further Cabinet Issues As Prime Minister Anibal Torres Resigns

PERU
  • Peru's Prime Minister Anibal Torres resigned on Wednesday, becoming the fourth casualty of said post under the Castillo administration.
  • Torres said he was stepping down "for personal reasons" in a letter sent to Castillo that was posted on twitter. The ex-lawyer and university professor indicated he was going to return to teaching.
  • The departure comes amid polling data that shows the government’s popularity has fallen to new lows and as prosecutors open investigations into President Castillo, his family and former close aides for alleged corruption.
  • Torres had been in the post since February and the resignation will trigger an automatic cabinet reshuffle, although this was widely speculated to occur anyway.
