President’s popularity drops
President Jose Mujica is at his lowest approval rate since he took office in March 2010. According to pollsters Cifra, his rating has dropped from 47% to 36% in the last six months. It is also the lowest position for the ruling coalition, Broad Front.
Cifra’s head, Luis Eduardo Gonzalez, has attributed this to a failure to find solutions in key areas of concern such as education, security, education, health and the rise in inflation.
