Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on Saturday announced a reshuffle of his left-wing cabinet.
Sanchez, the leader of the Socialist Party (PSOE), heads a government coalition with the hard-left Podemos party.
In a statement released as he was meeting with King Felipe to declare his intent to change the composition of the cabinet, the presidency said the new government’s “main objective will be the economic and social recovery of the country.
Podemos retains its five portfolios, with the changes affecting only some of the 17 portfolios held by PSOE members or personalities close to them.
