Zapatero shuffles Spanish cabinet

Embattled Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, trailing in the polls and squeezed by an economic downturn, announced a broad cabinet shuffle on Wednesday, bringing in new deputy prime minister and a new foreign minister, CNN said. Zapatero said the new first deputy prime minister will be Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, the interior minister who will also retain that post. Zapatero also confirmed that Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos, also part of Zapatero’s team since 2004, will be replaced by longtime Zapatero aide Trinidad Jimenez, currently health minister.
