Peru confirms one death from repression of protesters in Lima

In a recent poll, 75% of Peruvians are in favor of the president resigning from office, and 74% agree with the closure of the current Congress.

The parliament did not reach a consensus to advance the elections when the demonstrations are increasing and the political situation in the South American country is going through a streak of violence and uncertainty.

The latest survey by the Institute of Peruvian Studies (IEP) for the newspaper La República indicates that 73% of the population is in favor of such elections being held this year.

Continuing with the Executive, regarding the management of Prime Minister Alberto Otárola, 71% of those surveyed disapprove of his performance as president of the Council of Ministers.

Regarding Parliament's disapproval, it seems to continue to rise. 89% of the population rejects the current parliamentary management, a figure that has also grown by one percentage point in a matter of days.

In addition to this, 74% are in favor of the closure of Congress.

Likewise, 76% of citizens disapprove of the management of the president of Congress, José Williams, a percentage that has grown by 4 points, considering the previous survey. Only 14% approve of his management as head of the Legislature.

On Saturday night there were violent clashes between protesters and the police in Lima that left one person dead, the first in the capital after weeks of riots in southern regions of the South American country calling for the resignation of President Dina Boluarte.

Security cameras show the murder of Víctor Yacsavilca Santiesteban after a projectile hit his head when he was walking with a group of citizens on one of the sidewalks of Nicolás de Piérola avenue.

With the death of Saturday there are more than 60 deaths -among them a policeman- in the framework of the demonstrations that began the second week of December, had a truce at the end of the year and resumed on January 4 in Puno, south of the border with Bolivia.
