He needed to get rid of that pressure, between Tuesday and Wednesday he should be presenting the Cabinet”.

“The president has the will to form a Cabinet at the height of the population, I hope that in these days he formalizes the new Cabinet. It is the president who will announce it at the time. This will be a Cabinet that will have the conditions and will generate confidence in the population”, ended.
