Four days after the inauguration, Gustavo Petro has more than half the Council of Ministers empty.

Four days after taking office as president, Gustavo Petro still has more than half his council of ministers empty and most of the administrative departments, the central institutions for good governance.

Although he has already announced the names that will be in key ministries, such as the Treasury, the Ministry of External Affairs and Defence, The appointment of other high officials to become his inner circle is yet to be done.

One of its main chips should be the interior minister, the man who would risk it to lead the initiative process in Congress. His name would have to be announced soon enough to start a “fire” arising in the legislature due to the lack of someone representing the voice of government in the Capitol.

This is proof of what happened in the election of the controller. A political and legal pulse of such dimension has arisen that there is already a strong fracture between the traditional parties (Liberal, Conservative, La Yue and Cambio Radical), which have already announced their support for candidate María Fernanda Rangel. and the historical treaty, which attempts to remake the list, apparently includes the name of Julio Cesare Cardenas.

The lack of the presence of a voice representing the interests of the government in this discussion has led to the fact that, most likely, as it was not many years ago, the executive will be left without a friendly controller.

Anyone who accesses the Ministry of the Interior must be a person experienced in political matters, with the ability to build consensus, But also with the flair of knowing how to handle lawmakers, who are sometimes swayed by interests that go beyond legislative discussions.

Alfonso Prada, who led the junction with the outgoing Interior Minister, former Senator Luis Fernando Velasco and even former Minister Juan Fernando Cristo, has voiced his voice for the position, although he has become the new President in recent times. Haven’t been that close.

Who will head the Ministry of Justice is also a priority, even more so when one of the key lines of the Petro government will be the so-called absolute peace.Which implies the dedication of criminal organizations to justice.

This process would require the joint work of the Peace Commissioner and the Ministry of Justice. The ministry was offered to former magistrate José Gregorio Hernández, who did not accept the appointment for health reasons.

One of those who said no to Petro, that too for health reasons, Co-director of the Green Alliance was Antonio Navarro, who, Semana learned, was offered the Ministry of Mines and Energy.

This ministry will be crucial for the incoming government, which comes up with a business to energy transition, but it is not yet known who will occupy this portfolio.

The Ministry of Housing and the Ministry of Science and Technology are also vacant, to which, for now, a representative of the Liberal Party, a group that has declared itself in government, will come.

The Liberals have brought in the names of former Chamber representatives Rodrigo Rojas and Doris Méndez for these ministries. Outgoing Magistrate of the National Electoral Council. Former Senator Ivan Dario Agudello, author of the law that created the Ministry of Science, which could lead this portfolio, has also voiced his voice.

It is expected that the Ministry of Sports, Commerce or ICT may have representations from the Green Alliance, one of the parties that declared itself in government.

The Greens have already sent the resumes of former Senator Jorge Londondow, former Senator Sandra Ortiz, former Representative Mauricio Toro. Former presidential candidate Camilo Romero and former House of Representatives candidate for Santander Luz Dana Leal.

A key portfolio in which many names are yet to be known is that of Labour, especially because of Petro’s promise that the state would become the main employer and revisions to pension and labor matters.

In addition to ministries, most of the High Councils are also vacant, with the addition of the DEN, the Administrative Department of the Presidency and the Department of National Planning (DNP), very important entities for any government.

As far as the appointments already made are concerned, most of the names announced have been, in general terms, well received in the country. But he has left Patrismo in despair.

Although all those appointed to date have been well received by the historic treaty, they hardly recognize two as representatives of pure petrification: Susanna Muhammad, the Minister of the Environment, Colombian councilors Humana and Joe accompanied Petro to the Bogotá mayor’s office, and the culture minister, Patricia Ariza, survived the Patriotic Union massacre who took to the streets during the national strike.

lvaro Leva, who will be appointed foreign minister, was greeted with good eyes, but he does not represent the entire political arena. They see Carolina Korcho as more of an appointment than Petro, such as Ivan Velasquez, than Petrismo, while Cecilia López, José Antonio Ocampo and Alejandro Gaviria are foreign to them.

The next Colombian Ambassador to the United States, Luis Gilberto Murillo comes from the campaign of Sergio Fajardo and the government of Juan Manuel Santos, in which he was Minister of the Environment.

The appointments that went down very well were those of Arahuaca social leader Leonor Zalabata Torres, who would be ambassador to the United Nations in New York; Patricia Tobone, Amber Lawyer and Truth Commissioner, who will head the Victims Unit, and Giovanni Yule, a NASA sociologist, who will head the Land Restoration Unit.

Although not required to hold the post, Petro is expected to have a majority of his cabinet by 7 August. It will be a true race against time which he will do over the next few hours.
