Friday, August 31, 2012

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos named close ally Federico Rengifo as energy and mining minister in part of a Cabinet shuffle as the leader begins pursuing a peace process with FARC rebels.

Rengifo replaces Mauricio Cardenas, who was appointed last week to head the Finance Ministry. Rengifo, an economist and lawyer, previously served as interior minister.
