Another new minister takes office in Brazil

06-14-2011 13:45 BJT

BRASILIA, June 13 (Xinhua) -- Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff's newly appointed Ideli Salvati, previously in charge of the Fisheries and Aquaculture Ministry, took office as Institutional Relations Minister Monday.

Salvati will be responsible for coordinating the dialogue between President Rousseff's government and the Brazilian Congress.

Meanwhile, the former Institutional Relations Minister Luiz Sergio will be transferred to the Fisheries and Aquaculture Ministry, taking Salvati's place until Monday.

Salvati said she regards the new appointment as a challenge and would work hard to develop an ongoing dialogue with the parliament, where she has held a senate seat for eight years for the ruling Workers' Party.

Salvati promised to negotiate with the government allies in the parliament as well as with Brazil's political opposition to ensure a good relationship between Congress and the executive power.

Rousseff reshuffled her cabinet following the resignation of Antonio Palocci last week, who stepped down as chief of staff over a financial scandal.

After Rousseff appointed Senator Gleisi Hoffmann to replace Palocci, all the key political posts in Rousseff's administration are now occupied by women.
