President Carlos Alvarado said on Thursday that the selection of a new minister at the Ministry of Public Education (MEP) will take a little longer than expected and it was he, within the framework of the country’s Constitution, to choose a new minister and not the role of the social media.

Alvarado said he wants a woman to replace the office left vacant by Edgar Mora who on Monday (forcibly) resigned as part of the government’s solution to putting an end to the protests and the blockades.

Although he did not advance any names, the president did outline that “it would be desirable for it to be a woman” to address the issues of inclusion, infrastructure, and technology.

The president’s remarks followed social network reports that former vice-president Ana Helena Chacon or that former Education Minister Leonardo Garnier were being considered.

Other social media reports have Giselle Cruz, the current interim minister, as being appointed to a full-time posting.

“There are names mentioned to stir up things,” said the president.
