According to Sic Notícias, the former vice president of PS's parliamentarian bench, João Galamba, will take over the Energy affairs as State Secretary for Energy.

Jorge Seguro Sanchez is out, and it seems like João Galamba is next in line to take over the role of State Secretary for Energy in Costa’s administration. The president of the IPO (Portuguese Oncology Institute) will take the role of Secretary of State for the Health Ministry, according to Diário de Notícias, a Portuguese newspaper.

During the government’s reshuffle, that took place this weekend, Seguro Sanches had left the leadership role of the Energy Secretariat, which will now be subordinated to the Ministry of the Environment.

According to Sic Notícias, a Portuguese news channel, Galamba should now take over this role.

The takeover of the newly appointed state secretaries is scheduled for this Wednesday at 11:00 AM, in Belém.
