Peru: PPK makes a strong start

  • In his first few months in office, PPK has managed to maintain high popularity
  • He has also made good on some key campaign promises
  • He still faces a large opposition majority in Congress
  • Increasing minerals exports will be another big test

Pedro Pablo Kucznyski’s victory in Peru’s June presidential election was far from a mandate. The president, who is usually referred to by his initials, PPK, won in a runoff by just 0.24 percent of the vote. But despite the narrowness of PPK’s victory and his party’s paucity of seats in the legislature (only 18 of 130), the government has been advancing to fulfill campaign promises. By early November, at 100 days into his five-year term, PPK was quite popular.
