Lima, March 23, 2018: Martin Vizcarra is sworn in as Peru’s president

Peru’s president bets on fighting corruption

  • Martin Vizcarra has put fighting corruption at the center of his agenda
  • He faces a hostile congress that could scupper his plans
  • More political instability will hamper Peru’s economy

Peru’s politics have been in disarray for several years. Corruption scandals have ensnared three Peruvian presidents, several members of congress and more than a dozen judges. In March 2018, President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (PPK) resigned to avoid impeachment over a conflict-of-interest scandal that included alleged vote-buying.

Peru’s new president, Martin Vizcarra, had been elected first vice president as PPK’s running mate in the 2016 election. As president, he inherited difficult circumstances, particularly a hostile congress dominated by the conservative Popular Force (FP) party of Keiko Fujimori. Disenchantment with the government is growing, while the economy has slowed significantly over the past decade. Mr. Vizcarra is staking his presidency on the fight against corruption.
