Milei made the first appointment to his cabinet

He will not release more names until he takes office as president.

After the night of victory, the elected president of Argentina, Javier Milei, confirmed three new names that will join a Cabinet with some figures who participated during the election campaign.

Thus he said that Carolina Píparo, who is competing in La Libertad Avanza as a candidate for governor of Buenos Aires, will be the head of Anses; while lawyer Mariano Cúneo Libarona, who has not been involved in space activities until now, will take over as Minister of Justice. In addition, the economist Diana Mondino will be the future chancellor.

Píparo will manage the body that manages retirements, pensions and social allowances.

“(Píparo) is accompanied by a professional, colleague, named Juan Manuel Verón, who is actively working on the reform of the Mexican pension system. A person with very strong experience in bringing order to that level,” added the leader of La Libertad Avanza.

Regarding the role of Anses, Milei announced that at the moment he does not plan to introduce changes so that the pensions migrate to an AFJP system because the current model has an “imbalance” that does not allow it.

He also confirmed Cúneo Libarona as his Minister of Justice when he revealed that he plans to explain the vacant position of the Supreme Court of Justice with him.

“My intention is to reach an agreement with the Minister of Justice, which is Mariano Cúneo Libarona, and with the Court, that it is a consensual matter,” he said about the position left vacant by Elena Highton. The high-profile media lawyer is a doctor of criminal law and dean of the Faculty of Law of the University of the Argentine Social Museum (Umsa).

“For the lawyer we have working assumptions,” he limited himself to speak about other Justice positions that have not yet been filled.

Milei confirmed Píparo and Cúneo Libarona on Radio Miter this Monday morning. However, for now he said he will not announce his Economy Minister, because the current ruling party will “torpedo” him before taking office.

By further emphasizing that the Minister of Economy, Sergio Massa, and the president, Alberto Fernández, “constitutionally responsible for the situation of Argentines.”

He denied that a meeting was coordinated to order the transfer of government.

Regarding the question of which leaders will take office, the statement specified that “there will be no announcement of the appointment until the day of the inauguration.”
