There have been some changes of faces in Spain´s politics recently. After the last local and autonomous elections, there have been some changes in the presidency of some Autonomous Communities in Spain. Except for the new president of Navarre, who is a member of UPN, all the new presidents belong to the Popular Party (PP) or were former members of this party. This is the case of the new president of Asturias, who created a new party called Foro Asturias, because he was not designated as candidate for the presidency of the Principality by his former party. Here you have the new faces:
LUISA FERNANDA RUDI
FRANCISCO ÁLVAREZ CASCOS
JOSÉ RAMÓN BAUZÀ
JUAN IGNACIO DIEGO
MARÍA DOLORES DE COSPEDAL
JOSÉ ANTONIO MONAGO
The last change happened yesterday and it was not motivated by the result of the past elections. Francisco Camps, who was elected president some weeks ago, resigned due to his involvement in a corruption scandal, uncovered by the investigations of Gürtel case. The new president will be Alberto Fabra, who held the post of mayor in Castellón until yesterday.
And there has been a remodelation of the government as well. The exit of Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, the PSOE candidate for the next general elections, has provoked some changes in the configuration of the ministries and the appointment of a new minister of the Interior, Antonio Camacho.
The new spokesman will be José Blanco (he keeps his post in the Ministry of Public Works) and there will only be two vice-presidents, Elena Salgado and Manuel Chaves.
