The disapproval of the Peruvian president, Pedro Castillo, rose to 69% and reached its highest level in almost seven months of government, according to a survey released this Monday by the press and some social networks.
“69% of Peruvians disapprove of Pedro Castillo’s management and 25% approve of it. It is the lowest approval recorded since he began his term”, indicated the pollster ‘Ipsos’ through its Twitter account. The unfavorable result represents an increase of nine percentage points compared to the January 16 survey of the same company.
Castillo, who took office on July 28 for a five-year term, began his term with 45% disapproval amid ideological polarization and questions about his electoral victory in Peru. The president’s approval fell to 25%, while 6% avoided evaluating the presidential work, according to ‘Ipsos’.

Castillo’s negative evaluation has prompted calls for resignation from the opposition right-wing parliamentarian and the citizens, an idea that the president has discarded.
According to Ipsos, 56% of those surveyed believe that Castillo should resign, while 42% maintain that his term should end in July 2026. 2% do not specify their position.
“That the president has a high disapproval reflects the precariousness of his administrationand this without counting that in Congress it does not have a majority”, observed the political scientist Kathy Zegarra quoted by the newspaper ‘El Comercio’, which published the poll.
The rejection of the president, a unionist rural teacher, continues to be greater in Lima (84%), than in the rest of the country (62%). The Peruvian capital is home to a third of the electorate and to the Peruvian elites.
Harassed by the opposition and the struggles for quotas of power in the ruling leftist coalition, Castillo has just appointed a new ministerial cabinet, the fourth since he came to power. A record in a country that seems to live in permanent crisis for five years due to clashes between the Executive and Legislative.
The survey, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8%, consulted 1,214 elderly people between February 10 and 11 in various cities in Peru.
Castle, 52 years old, he won the last elections last June at the head of a small Marxist-Leninist party with 50.12% of the vote, in a close runoff against the right-wing Keiko Fujimori.
