LIMA — Peruvian Prime Minister Alberto Otarola has resigned from the post after an audio linking him to alleged irregular hiring of a young woman in the public sector was released.

“After conversations with the President of the Republic, Dina Boluarte, I have taken the decision to submit my resignation as the Prime Minister,” he told reporters on Tuesday, stating that “the baseness” of his political adversaries does not daunt him, Xinhua news agency reported.

He added that his decision has two objectives, the first being “to give tranquility to the President to recompose the ministerial cabinet,” and the second to allow her to continue working “as she has been doing.”

Details are awaited.
