Puerto Rico Governor Names Former U.S. Delegate As His Successor

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló has named Pedro Pierluisi as his new secretary of state, says Reuters.

Pierluisi is the island’s former representative in the U.S. Congress.

Pierluisi will be next in line to succeed Roselló when he steps down on Friday, August 2.

Last week Roselló announced he'd be stepping down after he faced public outrage and mass street protests.

Secretary of State Luis Rivera Marin would have been first in line to assume the office, but he resigned on July 13.
