Spanish PM Zapatero reshuffles government
Monday 11 July 2011
Spain's prime minister has reshuffled his cabinet to fill the void left by the departure of his interior minister to focus on resurrecting the Socialists' chances in upcoming elections.
Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, 59-years old, resigned from Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's government on Friday to focus on the election, which must be called by March .
Zapatero said today Antonio Camacho, secretary of state for security, will replace Rubalcaba, while Infrastructure Minister Jose Blanco will assume his role as government spokesman.
Spain is enduring 21 per cent unemployment and polls predict the Socialists will lose the election to the centre-right Popular Party. Zapatero is not seeking another term.
