    Sandra Belaunde, the production minister of the Government of Boluarte in Peru, resigns

    With this resignation, there are already six ministers who have left the current administration, in the midst of massive anti-government protests.

    The Minister of Production of Peru, Sandra Belaunde, presented her resignation on Wednesday, after a month and a half of assuming functions in the administration of Dina Boluarte.

    With the resignation of Belaunde, they already add six ministerial casualties since the Boluarte government began, on December 7, 2022, after the dismissal of the then president Pedro Castillo.

    Before Belaunde, Patricia Correa and Jair Perez Branez resigned from the ministries of Education and Culture, respectively, on December 16. Then, on January 12, Eduardo Garcia resigned from the Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion; and one day later, Victor Rojas and Grecia Rojas left the offices of the Interior and Women’s Affairs.

    Before confirming the news, the Minister of Economy and Finance, Alex Contreras, commented to local media that all the ministers of Boluarte’s Cabinet must “be at 100% to continue working for Peru.”

    “There may be changes that come from the premier or the president, it may even be that someone does not feel 100% and it is better to step aside to give others the opportunity. It is absolutely normal considering the context,” said Contreras.

    The resignations come amid protests against Boluarte and the Peruvian Congress, which have left at least 56 dead, according to the most recent report from the Ombudsman’s Office.
