President Bukele makes history by appointing woman as his substitute

San Salvador, Dec 2 (Prensa Latina) Claudia Juana Rodriguez de Guevara has been appointed as the interim president this week, which marked a milestone in Salvadoran history, turning into a breaking news in the week that concludes on Saturday.

Rodriguez is first Salvadoran woman to take the post of president until June 30, 2024. The appointee is Nayib Bukele’s private secretary, and during her career she held important responsibilities linked to the president and to companies belonging to the president’s family.

If this decision endorsed by the Legislative Assembly was noteworthy, so was the approval of Bukele’s and his vice-president’s leave to campaign in their efforts to remain in government for another five years, something that opinion polls take for granted.

The one appointed has been side by side to Bukele for years. Since his time as mayor, she has been the private secretary, financial manager of the Presidency, president of the Board of Directors of the National Directorate of Municipal Works (DOM) and was treasurer of the Mayor’s Office of San Salvador, and financial CEO of the Obermet Company, linked to the President, among other crucial posts.
