José Manuel Albares, ambassador in Paris, will be in charge of the Foreign Ministry
By Miguel Ángel Alfonso
Daughter of a taxi driver and a hairdresser, graduated in Law and specialist in legal translation and gender violence, entered the judicial career in 1999. She jumped into politics as a candidate for regional deputy of Madrid on the PSOE lists in 2015, led by Ángel Gabilondo, who places great trust in her. Although Llop does not have a socialist card, the general secretary of the Madrid PSOE, José Manuel Franco, even proposed her as president of the regional assembly.
Miquel Iceta, current Minister of Territorial Policy and Public Function replaces José Manuel Rodríguez Uribes in the Culture portfolio
Arancha González Laya leaves the portfolio of Foreign Affairs
Pedro Sánchez will appear at 1:15 p.m.
Also leaving the Executive is Carmen Calvo, who will be the president of the Council of State, from which María Teresa Fernández de la Vega will retire.
Pedro Sánchez leaves the Chief of Staff, Iván Redondo, out of the Government and replaces him with Óscar López, president of the Paradores de Turismo
Pilar Llop, current president of the Senate, will be the new Minister of Justice to replace Juan Carlos Campo
Changes may not be limited to government. In the leadership of the PSOE itself, it is assumed that in the next congress, which is held in October in Valencia, Sánchez will renew 70% of his executive. “There are gestures that are eloquent: no executive secretary has been given a role in the preparation of the presentation and they are not even summoned to acts that are supposedly their business”, they remarked.
The PP demands elections: “The problem is not the ministers”
“There is no government crisis that can cover up all the lies and all the pride that Pedro Sánchez represents,” says Cuca Gamarra
In principle, the changes in the Council of Ministers will not affect the portfolios occupied by members of Unidos Podemos:
Yolanda Diaz: Third Vice President and Minister of Labor and Social Economy
Ione Belarra Urteaga: Minister of Social Rights and the 2030 Agenda
Irene Montero: Minister of Equality
Alberto Garzón: Minister of Consumption
Manuel Castells: Minister of Universities
An appearance without the President of the Government is scheduled to announce the remodeling
The PP spokesperson in Congress, Cuca Gamarra, has affirmed, before the remodeling of the central government scheduled for this Saturday, that the problem of the Executive “is not his ministers”, but Pedro Sánchez, whom he has asked to leave and that dissolve the courts. “Changing the winks is useless in the Sánchez government if the independentistas continue to pull the strings and he continues to lead that government,” he assured.
These have been the previous changes of ministers that Pedro Sánchez has made:
Pablo Iglesias Turrión: From January 13, 2020 – March 31, 2021. Replaces him Ione Belarra Urteaga
Salvador Illa Roca: From January 13, 2020 – January 27, 2021. Replaces him Carolina Darias San Sebastian
Carolina Darias San Sebastian: From January 13, 2020 – January 27, 2021. Replaces it: Miquel Iceta Llorens
Sánchez is the problem and the solution, the ballot box. There is no change of ministers that will allow him to fly back.

The crisis will be “broad” and will affect “fundamental” portfolios and the “coordination structures” of the cabinet, that is, the four vice presidencies, according to the Ser chain, which has advanced the news. The changes, in principle, will not affect the five portfolios of United We Can, according to the coalition agreement signed by Pedro Sánchez and Pablo Iglesias two years ago.
Good Morning. The president will undertake the first ministerial remodeling of his coalition government this Saturday. The president will communicate to the King throughout the day the names of the relieved ministers and their substitutes and Moncloa will make it public later.
