    The president-elect of Brazil, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, announced this Friday the first five names of his next cabinet, confirming what had been speculated in recent weeks, that the former mayor of Sao Paulo Fernando Haddad will be Minister of Finance and Jose Mucio Monteiro will lead Defense.

    “I have made the decision to present some of the ministers and next week I will present some more. On Sunday we are going to meet to see the number of ministries and secretariats that we are going to create,” said Lula, who had originally planned give only the first names this Monday the 12th, when he receives the credentials of his triumph from the Superior Electoral Tribunal (TSE).

    In addition to the already planned Haddad and Mucio, Lula has appointed the ex-governor of Bahia Rui Costa to direct Casa Civil –a sort of Headquarters of Government–; Flavio Dino for the Ministry of Justice; and Mauro Vieira for Foreign Affairs, a position that she already held during the government of Dilma Rousseff.
