Francesc Fiol becomes the new minister for education and culture; Mabel Cabrer will take on responsibility for the ministry of public works; José María Rodríguez is appointed head of the civil service and minister of the interior; agriculture and fisheries will be led by Tomás de Villanueva Cortés, and Aina Castillo takes over the ministry of health and consumer issues. The new Cabinet is completed by Guillermo de Olives as minister of labour and training; Josep Juan Cardona as minister for commerce, industry and energy; the ministry of the environment is headed by Jaume Font, and Lluís Ramis de Ayreflo directs the ministry of the economy, taxation and innovation. Although these appointments took into account performance in previous offices, either public or private, Matas emphasized that these positions are neither a prize nor a privilege, and indeed, will demand from the title holders a total commitment to fulfilling these enormous responsibilities. Having named his team, Matas went on to say that we have officially handed out the responsibility of government which has been decreed by popular vote at the ballot box. The new Executive has a great responsibility stimulating them into action; weighty yet motivating for which I wish them good luck.
