With the resignation of Ricardo Roselló, who will leave his post as governor of Puerto Rico on August 2, many wonder who will be the new political leader of the island? Everything indicates that it could be Pedro Perluisi, who Roselló recently appointed secretary of state. Perluisi, who resides in Washington DC, was appointed to his new position on Wednesday and is reported to be the island's new governor. The Secretary of Justice Wanda Vázquez has been criticized on social networks - using the hashtag # WandaRenuncia - and has expressed that she does not want to be governor of the island. Will Pierluisi be the new leader that everyone expects?

"After much analysis and taking into account the best interests of our people, I have selected Mr. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia to fill the vacancy of Secretary of State. To attend to the matter, I will be calling an extraordinary one for tomorrow,”said Roselló on Twitter.

What experience does Perluisi have? He was Secretary of Justice under the administration of Pedro Rosselló González and Resident Commissioner under Governors Luis Fortuño and Alejandro García Padilla, reports the Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Día. He was also a candidate for the governorship for the New Progressive Party in June 2016 against Ricardo Rosselló and was president of the PNP.

“I have listened to the expressions of the people, their manifestations, their demands and their concerns. In this new task in my life, the only person I owe is the people,”Pierluisi said on Twitter after his appointment as secretary of state. Surely the eyes of the world are on him now.
