Peru’s Prime Minister Torres Resigns

Peru’s Prime Minister, Anibal Torres, announced on Wednesday that he presented his resignation to President Pedro Castillo, alleging “personal reasons”

Peru’s Prime Minister Anibal Torres resigned after less than six months in office. He is the fourth person to resign as PM in less than a year.

Torres, a lawyer, announced his resignation in a letter shared by social media on Wednesday.

“I am withdrawing from office after having served our homeland and its most neglected and its forgotten people, together with you.” he wrote in the resignation letter addressed to Peru’s President Pedro Castillo.

“Today I have to return to the university classrooms with my students, and take up what I missed the most: legal research.”

Torres’ resignation comes amid a criminal investigation that has focused on the President Castillo, who has grown increasingly isolated in just a year in power.

“Today I have to return to the university classrooms with my students, and take up what I missed the most: legal research.”
