A new cabinet was sworn in today after Premier Villanueva’s resignation.The new Premier is Salvador del Solar, who was Minister of Culture during Pedro Pablo Kuczynski’s tenure. Mr del Solar is an actor and film director, and is also a lawyer who studied international relations in the US. Seven new ministers were also sworn in, one minister changed ministry, and ten ministers remained in their posts. Worthy of note, there were no major changes in ministries linked to economic activity. Carlos Oliva remains as Ministry of Finance, and ministers of Mining, Transport and International Trade stayed in their posts. Changes were made in ministries within the social sectors. Most of the new Ministers are female, in line with President Vizcarra’s pursuit of gender equality in government. The greatest uncertainty is whether Premier del Solar will have the capacity to establish a good rapport with good subnational authorities, given that the potential for regional and social conflicts remains ever-present.
