UPDATE 1: This is now moving fast, with La Republica now saying that they’ve heard Jiménez has handed in his resignation.
UPDATE 2: Although still unconfirmed, the Jiménez departure is now a given. Well sourced rumour is that the President of the San Martín Region (northern jungle gateway region of Peru), César Villanueva, is going to get the job of Prime Minister and cabinet chief. Mini-update: That now seems confirmed, with serious news source Gestión calling it.
UPDATE 3: Massive rumour now doing the rounds that FinMin Castilla is leaving his post.
UPDATE 4: Jiménez is gone, confirmed. Villanueva is the new PM, confirmed. Jiménez just said on Peru news TV that the decision was made on Monday. What’s left to see is who goes with the ex-PM and how many ministers get changed in this cabinet shake-up. The swearing-in ceremony for the new PM has been set for tomorrow evening, which means we’ll have all new ministers named and confirmed and sworn in at the same time.
