Uruguay’s Vazquez to Maintain Open-Door Policy with Other Countries

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguayan president-elect Tabare Vazquez has announced that his new government will maintain an “open-door policy” with countries around the world as he presented his cabinet to the public.

The new cabinet with many fresh new faces “will be working with me during all my term,” Vazquez said at a press conference Tuesday.

“We are going to have an open-door foreign policy with all countries, not only of the region but throughout the world, continuing the same policies that have been pursued since the first Broad Front government,” Vazquez said, referring to his left-wing party.

Of the 13 ministers holding portfolios, Interior Minister Eduardo Bonomi, Defense Minister Eleuterio Fernandez Huidobro, Tourism Minister Liliam Kechichian and Stockbreeding, Agriculture, and Fisheries Minister Tabare Aguerre will remain at their posts.

Both Bonomi and Fernandez Huidobro were appointed by outgoing president Jose Mujica.

Tabare Vazquez, 74, who also governed the country between 2005 and 2010, declared that the cabinet including presidential secretary Miguel Toma, and Alvaro Garcia, head of Planning and Budget, as well as the undersecretaries of the 13 ministries had been directly chosen by him.

He also announced that from Dec. 15 onwards he will hold meetings with leaders of political parties in parliament to seek points of convergence as promised on Sunday after his electoral victory.

The Broad Front brought the left wing to power for the first time in the country’s history in 2005 and is a compilation of a dozen parties of the left including Socialists, Communists, Marxists, Leninists, the former leftist Tupamaros guerrillas and independents.
