Aznar to appoint successor - name on Monday

29 August. President Aznar has announced he will inform us of the name of his successor on Monday. On Tuesday the governing Partido Popular will have the chance to ratify this appointee. Other changes in the cabinet are also mooted. Obviously, the Partido Popular really believes in the democratic process!

Josep Piqué, minister of Science and Technology and former foreign minister, is also leaving the cabinet to concentrate on the lead up to the Catalan elections in November. He is the PP's candidate to preside the 'Generalitat'. More next week.
