Peru PM Ana Jara steps down over Failure to control Spy Agency

Peru, March 31: Peru Prime Minister Ana Jara quit from her post after she lost the support in a trust vote in Congress today. For the first time, the Congress rejected its PM over the allegations that she failed to control the country's intelligence agency.

A new PM will be selected following her resignation. She received flak from various quarters after the allegations that the spy agency was spying on the top brass in business and politics.

The members of the ruling party Peru Wins said that the PM Ana had been a "scapegoat" and therefore she was removed from the top post. She was the sixth PM under the President Ollanta Humala during his tenure in four years.

Ana was nominated as the PM of Peru after the Congress approved her less than a year ago after. However, she had to step down following the allegations.
