  • Outgoing Puerto Rico governor nominates new secretary of state

Puerto Rico's governor says he's chosen former Congress representative Pedro Pierluisi as the USA territory's secretary of state. Mass demonstrations are continuing in Puerto Rico with protesters demanding that Vazquez also step down in the wake of the Telegram scandal.

With just two days before he leaves office, disgraced Gov. Ricardo Rosselló has named a new secretary of state who would then become Puerto Rico's top leader this Friday (August 2) - if the island's lawmakers approve.

Rosselló added he would be calling an extraordinary legislative session to try to confirm Pierluisi on Thursday.

Pierluisi represented Puerto Rico in Congress from 2009-2017.
