Madrid: Pedro Sánchez presented his new Cabinet on Monday, days after the Socialist leader secured another term as Spain’s prime minister.
Sánchez unveiled a Cabinet that looked similar to his last one, with the same people holding the top posts at key ministries, including economy, defence, energy, labour and foreign affairs.
The new line-up mixes “maturity and experience with youth,” has a “strong feminist accent” with 12 women among the 22 ministers, and is committed to “dialogue,” he said.
Sánchez’s Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party holds 17 ministries while the his leftist Sumar coalition partner will have five. There is a new Ministry for Children and Young People. The Spanish parliament narrowly voted last Thursday to confirm Sánchez in office for a renewed four-year term. (DPA)
