Pedro Sánchez will also leave out who has been his crush since his accession to the presidency of the Government, Ivan Redondo. He will be replaced in the chief of staff of the president by Oscar Lopez, former Secretary of Organization of the PSOE and who was in charge of Paradores for three years.
Calviño lacks the political profile and cannot assume some of the functions that Calvo used as coordinator of the government’s action. Sánchez has resorted to the formula that his Ministry of the Presidency and Relations with the Courts passes into the hands of one of his most trusted men: Felix Bolaños. He is the strongest figure in this crisis. Until now Secretary General of the Presidency of the Government. The Minister of Science will also leave the Government, Pedro Duque. The remodeling does not affect the ministers of the United We Can coalition. The position of Duque will be occupied by the current mayor of Gandía, Diana Morant. The Minister of Education, Isabel Celáa, will also leave the Government. His substitute will be the Aragonese Pilar Alegría.
