Toledo moves Quijandria back to mines & energy

Monday, February 16, 2004

Peru's President Alejandro Toledo moved Jaime Quijandria back to his former post as mines and energy minister in a cabinet reshuffle over the weekend.

Quijandria replaces Hans Flury, who was appointed in July 2003 when Quijandria was moved to the economy ministry.

Toledo named Pedro Pablo Kuczynski as the new economy minister in a "consensus cabinet" to bolster his flagging popularity, which has fallen as low as 7% according to a report on CNN.
