Javier Milei will fulfill his promise to govern with fewer ministries. In the end there will be nine, after he confirmed that he will have the rank and it will be occupied by Mario Russo. Three figures stand out in his government team: his sister Karina, Nicolás Posse, who will be his chief of staff, and Santiago Caputo, who could be a sort of virtual chief of advisers.

Karina Milei will take charge of a General Secretariat of a Presidency in full transformation: the objective is to "shrink" a structure comprised of 3 undersecretaries and two decentralized bodies.

To be able to take office this Sunday, he will depend on a corrective decree to a regulation of Mauricio Macri that prohibited the hiring of blood relatives of the President. If it is published in a timely manner, it will participate in the swearing-in ceremony this Sunday. Otherwise, you'll wait a few more hours. Beyond these formalities, "The Boss" will play a decisive role in the new administration. His word is the one that the president listens to the most and that is why it will weigh in the definition of negotiations and political alliances

Luis Caputo will be the head of the Treasury Palace and will have the gaze of the first economist president as a shadow. He will be in charge of the macro ordering, which will involve a strong adjustment and an update of relative prices. Time will tell if it will be able to carry out the long-awaited stabilization. He is surrounding himself with officials he trusts, his consulting firm Anker, and one of them will even occupy the presidency of the Central Bank. Gone are the demands of those who fought for the "independence" of the monetary authority.

Nicolas Posse, who comes from the Eurnekian Group as the loquacious economist, was in charge of the architecture of the new cabinet. He will be the coordinating minister and a sort of "controller" of the management of the nine ministers is envisaged. In the midst of the reduction of the State, the Headquarters could absorb a more limited Legal and Technical Department.

Guillermo Francos, Minister of the Interior, is also a native of the America Corporation, and after the PASO he became the political owner of the space. He was the one who introduced Peronist leaders into the cabinet and who will have the mission of negotiating with the governors the agreements that, for example, will allow the ruling party to add legislators to vote in Parliament on the pending reforms.

Sandra Pettovello will be in charge of the new Human Capital. This graduate in "Family" from the Universidad Austral has had a tumultuous assembly of her super ministry: In the end she is left without the area of Health under her orbit: it will be a ministry. It will have the Ministries of Labor, Social Development and Education within its framework. She is close to Karina Milei, whom she accompanied to Casa Rosada in her "transition" meeting with Julio Vittobello.

Another leader close to the Eurnekian group will be in charge of Infrastructure. This is Guillermo Ferraro, who will absorb Public Works and other economic areas. In an administration that promises to paralyze public investment projects, it will have the complex mission of giving impetus to the "private initiative" plans with which the government promises to build highways, for example. In their environment, they clarify that they are not the PPPs (Public and Private Participation) of Macrism that, "due to the requirements of the guarantees in dollars", they argue, were destined to fail. The minister has the confidence of the Milei brothers and therefore resisted criticism when he was in charge of the audit of the LLA.

Economist Diana Mondino will be the chancellor of the libertarian government. He has already announced that he does not agree with Argentina's incorporation into the BRICS and seeks to rediscuss Mercosur alliances.

The media criminal lawyer Mariano Cuneo Libarona will be in charge of Justice. He has already begun the task of repairing the link between the Executive and the Supreme Court, in a meeting he held with the supreme courts and culminated in a family photo. Beyond the pending reforms, it will have to select candidates to fill the vacancy on the highest court and in the Attorney General's Office.

As a result of her agreement with the libertarian leader, Patricia Bullrich returns to Security. He promises to replicate his close ties with the federal forces and try to "put the streets in order" in the face of the forecast of an increase in social conflict. This link also allowed him to promote his running mate, the radical rebel Luis Petri, to the Ministry of Defense.

Petri will have to approach a portfolio that has as a debt to update the salaries of the members of the Armed Forces and the military reequipment. He will work in an area that, in principle, was going to fall under the umbrella of Vice President Victoria Villarruel, who has a close relationship with Army officers. It will be necessary to follow what the future coexistence between the two officials will be like.

With a low profile and for now no confirmed position, Santiago Caputo has played a fundamental role in the communication of the campaign and in the assembly of that area in the incoming administration. He is one of the leaders most listened to by the head of state.
