Cuba has replaced its minister of interior commerce after two years on
An official report in Communist Party daily Granma on Tuesday does not
give a reason for the change. It mentions no criticism of Jacinto Angulo
Pardo and says he will be reassigned, "taking into account his
experience and career."
The No. 2 person at the ministry was Mary Blanca Ortega Barredo and she
has been promoted to replace him.
Cuba is in the process of shaking up its socialist system to try to save
a struggling economy by allowing more private sector activity.
