Brasília – President elect, Dilma Rousseff, has just announced the names of the last of the 37 ministers who will have seats in her cabinet.
Two-term Federal Deputy Iriny Lopes (PT-ES) will be in charge of the Special Secretariat for Women (“Secretaria de Políticas para as Mulheres”).
Afonso Florence (PT-BA), who was just elected Federal Deputy, will head the Ministry of Agrarian Development.
Lopes was a founding member of the PT in the state of Espirito Santo and is well known for her work in the Congress in favor of civil rights where she was the chairperson for the Human Rights and Minorities Commission.
Florence was the state secretary for Urban Development in Bahia. It must be remembered that these names are nominees and will still have to be officially confirmed in the future.
