Rajoy Names All Cabinet Positions

Rajoy Names All Cabinet Positions

Following a two-day investiture debate earlier this week the leader of the Partido Popular, Mariano Rajoy, was sworn in as the country's new Prime Minister.

Since leading the party to a landslide victory at the general election just one month ago, he had been refused to be drawn on naming his cabinet, insiting that he would 'choose the best people for the jobs'.

Rajoy was officially sworn in as PM yesterday afternoon and following a brief telephone conversation with the President of the USA, who offered his full support, together with a meeting with the King, he has now finally named the cabinet for the duration of his administration as Prime Minister :

Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Presidency & Spokesperson: Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría

Foreign Affairs & Cooperation: José Manuel García Margallo

Justice: Alberto Ruiz-Gallardón

Defence: Pedro Morenés

Hacienda & Public Administration: Cristóbal Montoro

Interior: Jorge Fernández Díaz

Development: Ana Pastor

Education: Culture and Sports, José Ignacio Wert

Employment & Social Security: Fátima Báñez

Energy & Tourism: José Manuel Soria

Agriculture, Food & Environment: Miguel Ángel Arias Cañete

Economy: Luis de Guindos

Health, Social Services & Equality: Ana Mato

Observers will note that there are fewer cabinet seats than in the previous PSOE administration, due to a merger of a number of positions.
