Peru president’s approval drops in wake of floods

President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski’s approval rating plummeted to 32% following weeks of nationwide flooding which left 75 dead and over 100,000 victims.

An Ipsos poll showed Kuczynski’s approval rating fell six points from February as flood damages spread across 24 of Peru’s 25 states. The survey showed 58% disapprove of the government’s handling of the crisis. The president’s approval rating has been in steady decline since September 2016 where it stood at 63%.
