After Guzmán’s resignation, the President seeks to maintain the economic program and defines the new minister tomorrow

President Alberto Fernandez communicated tonight to his closest collaborators that he will take a few hours to think about who he will replace Martin Guzman at the Ministry of Economy. “The definition happens for tomorrow,” assured a pro-government leader who made contact with the president. Meanwhile, the Government revealed the President’s decision to “maintain the economic program” in force, which includes an agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). “There will not be a sharp turn in the economy,” they assured tonight official sources. Among the candidates to succeed Guzmán were the economists Emmanuel Alvarez Agis, Marco Lavagna and Augusto Costa. In the dance of names, two officials were also counted: Silvina Batakis and Cecilia Todesca, although the versions that circulated in the ruling party did not rule out the possibility that the changes in the Cabinet were not limited only to the Economy portfolio.
