Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo (L) and Prime Minister Beatriz Merino at swearing-in ceremony at the Government Palace in Lima, in this file photo from June 28, 2003. Merino said on December 15, 2003 she had resigned from the government, after being asked to do so by President Toledo. Merino said she had been a victim of a campaign to smear her reputation this month, after media published unnamed sources accusing her of everything from corruption to lesbianism.
