LIMA (Reuters) - Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra will name actor and former culture minister Salvador del Solar as his new prime minister on Monday, three sources said.

Salvador del Solar, who was culture minister under disgraced former president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski for about a year, will be sworn in later on Monday, the sources said. The sources asked not to be named because an announcement had not yet been made.
