Bolivia’s President Names 10 New Cabinet Ministers

LA PAZ – The president of Bolivia retained 10 Cabinet ministers Monday and appointed 10 new ministers, including a new foreign minister.

Evo Morales selected Fernando Huanacuni to succeed Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca, one of two ministers who have served in the Cabinet since the head of state took office for the first time in 2006.

The 57-year-old Morales created a new Energy Ministry, splitting it from the Hydrocarbons Ministry, and eliminated the autonomous regions and transparency portfolios, with their missions assigned to other ministries.

The new faces in the Cabinet are Chief of Staff Rene Martinez; Communications Minister Gisela Lopez; Culture and Tourism Minister Wilma Alanoca; Productive Development and Pluralistic Economy Minister Eugenio Rojas; Energy Minister Rafael Alarcon Orihuela; and Justice and Institutional Transparency Minister Hector Arce.

Others joining the Cabinet are Carlos Rene Ortuño, who will be in charge of the Environment and Water Ministry; Mariana Prado Noya, who will head the Development Planning Ministry; and Hector Andres Hinojosa, the new head of the Labor Ministry.

Defense Minister Reymi Ferreira; Economy Minister Luis Arce; Sports Minister Tito Montaño; Rural Development Minister Cesar Cocarico; Education Minister Roberto Aguilar; Interior Minister Carlos Romero; Hydrocarbons Minister Luis Alberto Sanchez; Mining Minister Cesar Navarro; Public Works Minister Milton Claros; and Health Minister Ariana Campero kept their jobs.

Arce is the only minister who has been in Morales’s Cabinet since the president’s first inauguration.

The new 20-minister Cabinet includes only four women.

Morales has said that appointees not confirmed by Congress would be placed in the foreign service or other important posts.
