Double blow to economic cabinet in Guatemala
Guatemalan Finance Minister Alberto Fuentes resigned on Wednesday due to frustration over delays in passing a reform of the country's finances, President Alvaro Colom said.
Fuentes, one of the few ministers from Colom's original cabinet still in office after almost two and a half years, had tried on several occasions to pass a fiscal reform bill.
Colom also announced the resignation of Energy and Mines Minster Carlos Meany, who stepped down due to health reasons.
