Survey: Most Peruvians reject Hugo Chávez
Most Peruvians reject Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, who has repeatedly expressed his support for Peruvian nationalist presidential candidate Ollanta Humala and whom Lima accuses of interfering with Peruvian internal affairs, a survey disclosed Monday showed.
Sixty-one percent of 2,000 respondents nationwide in Peru said they had a negative image of the Venezuelan ruler, according to the survey conducted by pollster Apoyo.
On the contrary, only 17 percent claimed to have a positive idea about Chávez, while eight percent did not reply, and 14 percent said they did not know him, Apoyo said. The poll was conducted in May 3-5, and has 2.2 percent error margin, AFP reported.
Peruvians' negative view of Chávez is the result of the opinions the Venezuelan ruler has spread about the Peruvian presidential race, as Chávez has repeatedly expressed his support for Humala, the candidate of the Unión por el Perú party.
