Peru's prime minister quits after fall in government's approval rating

Peruvian Prime Minister Cesar Villanueva has resigned following a slide in President Martin Vizcarra's approval rating, Reuters reported.

Vizcarra expressed gratitude to Villanueva for his services but did not immediately name a replacement, according to a statement from the president's office.

Two anonymous government sources told Reuters that Justice Minister Vicente Zeballos is being considered to replace Villanueva, who has been prime minister for the past year. Vizcarra will probably reshuffle his cabinet in an attempt to boost his approval rating, the sources said.

A recent Datum Internacional survey showed that Vizcarra's approval rating has declined to 56%, down 7 percentage points from February. Reuters noted that Peruvian presidents often make cabinet changes when their approval ratings tumble.
