Who are the members of the new ministerial cabinet?
- Juan Cisneros, the former President of the Republic, will preside over the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Social Development, Education and Science and Technology. He will also serve as Secretary of State.
- Benjamin Pickles, will preside over the Ministries of Defense and the Environment.
- Addison Dillon, the now former Prime Minister of the Republic, will chair the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

The only ones who will continue to hold their original posts are Jonas Rhymer, who will continue to serve as Minister of Sport, and Rory McPhil, who will continue to serve as Minister of Health. In the meantime, the Prime Minister will also serve as Minister of Arts, Culture and Heritage.
It is expected that in the next few days a meeting of the cabinet of ministers and government officials will be convened, where issues of interest to the nation will possibly be discussed.
